« A Nonlinearity Brainteaser | Main | Why Is Macro So Hard? Is It Important for Understanding Macroeconomics to Recognize How Sh**ty Life Used to Be? »


Kit L.

This hits a little close to home working for a regulated electric utility, with no real competition for customers. Often, Public Commission staff is made up of former utility employees.
The two issues at the heart of net metering and distributed generation (aka Solar) are 1)the desire for clean energy, and 2)the belief that solar is more economical for private consumers. The first is true, the second is still laughably not, but the gap is slowly closing.
But under the current system, even if Solar does become more economical for those who make the switch, it comes at the cost of traditional customers who are now forced to bear the burden of fixed costs spread over a smaller group of customers, and subsidize solar customers who still enjoy the benefits of being connected to the grid.
