Florida Bill to Kill Rooftop Solar

Today excess power generated by rooftop solar in most places is bought back by grid operators at retail prices, about $0.10 kWh. This seems fair, since consumers are paying retail form the power they take from the grid. A new law will lower this by half in four years, then continue to lower the payback more in subsequent years. This bill is massively unpopular and simply protects monopoly utility companies. Oh, there is also a plan for power companies to charge some unspecified fees to people with rooftop solar panels.

Wow. Citizens need to fight this. And if that doesn’t work, get batteries and stop selling excess power back to grid operators. If that doesn’t work, disconnect from the grid all together.
