Why are you proposing to “tax the sun” by charging residential customers with their own generating systems a monthly fee to sell energy back to the grid?

We are not proposing to charge customers for sending power to the grid. We are proposing to add a demand charge of $3.79 per installed kilowatt of customer-owned generation to recover some of the fixed costs currently included in the energy charge and to recover the costs we – and ultimately our other customers -- pay to have standby generation ready when those solar customers need it – at night, during inclement weather, or whenever their systems are unable to meet their energy needs.
