Paying For Your Neighbors’ Solar Panels

Solar power adds to nonusers’ costs – SFGate.

Hey California. Guess who’s paying for your neighbor to put “free” solar panels on their roof? That’s right. You. Subsidies and higher utility bills suck money out of your pocket so the guy next door can feel better.
