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.

Power companies in California are required to buy electricity from residents and businesses with solar generator systems at the same price they resell it to other customers, meaning utilities earn nothing to cover their fixed costs. Photo: Sam Hodgson, Bloomberg / SF
