From the article:
According to SDG&E, that means each solar customer receives a subsidy of $1,100 a year from traditional customers
Complete BS. Year in my house without solar: $640. So now that I've gone solar I cost the utility twice as much?
My bill after solar was about $110 for the year. So now I'm supposed to pay another $11-30/month? That will cut the incentive to install solar by a huge amount. My break-even period was already around 10 years because I don't use much electricity - with this change it could be pushed out to 20-30 years. Why install solar at that point? You might as well go completely off-grid. The cost will be similar!
I really feel bad for all the people doing solar leasing - they'll end up paying more on their bill instead of less.
If they get this rate increase approved, it will kill the San Diego residential and commercial PV industry over night.
