Wild Energy / Recharging Rooftop Solar
Maximizing the solar potential of our rooftops is a solution that benefits the climate, wildlife and communities. And, as we've written before, several states have weak, nonexistent or bad policies that throw shade on the rooftop solar market.
In a recent editorial, Bloomberg View shines a light on one of the most common policy battles that can advance or obstruct rooftop solar: net metering. Bloomberg's editors not only explain why the claim that net metering shifts costs to other utility customers is misleading, but also argue that states must stop sowing uncertainty about solar. "Solar power should indeed be subsidized, relative to carbon-based energy — to protect against climate change and the lung-damaging pollution that comes from burning fossil fuels."
