- Would be bad for business and will kill thousands of solar jobs in Utah.
- Would unfairly punish consumers who are trying to save money by using less power from the grid.
- Would allow them to take advantage of its monopoly by eliminating consumer choice, energy independence, and consumers' ability to do what they wish on their rooftops.
The Commission is required to study the costs and benefits of residential solar in Utah. Most states have found that residential solar provides a net benefit to everyone, not just solar customers. Rocky Mountain Power ignores the full benefits and demonstrated cost-savings that they and all Utahns receive from residential solar. Utah deserves an open and transparent cost-benefit study.
We call on Governor Herbert, the Utah Legislature, the Utah Public Service Commission, the Utah Division of Public Utilities, and the Utah Office of Consumer Services to reject Rocky Mountain Power’s proposal. We ask the Commission to conduct a robust and fair cost-benefit study so that Utah homeowners can continue to invest in solar and energy independence.
