The Wonders of Government Efficiency

by Azreel | May 10th, 2007

California has long led the race to install solar panels on the roofs of residential houses. In addition to federal tax credits, the state has offered rebates of its own. But recent changes to the guidelines to who is eligible for thoes credits have all but put a complete halt on the solar industry.

By forcing solar users into more expensive pricing plans, the California PUC has effectively priced consumers out of the market. Installing solar panels has stopped being a cost cutting measure and started to cost users more than they net in return. In essence, it is now more cost effective to buy good ‘ole grid electricity at prices exceeding $0.20 per kilowatt hour.
