More California stuff...

"If a home or business has a rooftop solar system, most of the wattage isn't included in the ambitious requirement to generate half of the state's electricity from renewable sources such as solar and wind by 2030, part of legislation signed in October by Gov. Jerry Brown."

"It also means that utility ratepayers could end up overpaying for clean electricity to meet the state's benchmark because lawmakers, by excluding rooftop solar, left out the source of more than a third of the state's solar power."

California Power Co Proposals For Solar Fees

The big question is how do they justify this? Where are the VERIFIED numbers? Did someone pull this out of their butt?

Isn't everyone already paying a fee for grid maintenance?

Power in / power out is the same amps isn't it?

We are supplying customers more directly with distributed energy power than the power company does so there is actually less grid equipment used and thus less maintenance. Simply put, energy from solar panels go more to neighbor homes more directly and with less loss and grid maintenance while also taking load off the larger grid structure.

What's the problem?

"The net impact of the changes proposed by PG&E would be between $13-29 monthly for a typical prospective solar customer planning to install a 3.0 kilowatt solar system"

"A house with a 3-kilowatt system would pay a charge of $9 per month to support the power network. A house with a larger 6-kilowatt system would pay $18 per month."
