a trend gaining momentumPosted: August 12, 2014
When we had our solar power system installed we used The Solar Company, and we have been very happy with the results since then.
The leader in volume installations these days, however, seems to be Solar City, part of the Elon Musk empire. Residents in our area have been adding solar panels to their homes with some regularity of late, and almost invariably I see those distinctive green and white Solar City trucks in front of the house.
Whoever is doing the work, it is good to see. There is the issue of how the utilities pay to maintain the infrastructure when people’s meters are running backwards, but the California state legislature last year passed legislation that allows the public utilities commission to address that.
And if we’re reducing the strain of the grid, that’s a Good Thing.
