May 2019 - the State senate unanimously approved the bill to lift caps on the number of rooftop solar installations in the state. It extends the contract for at least 10 years for energy producers who can deliver electricity for below the cost of traditional utilities.
The bill guarantees that homeowners or others who generate power with solar panels can sell that power to utilities for a credit.
Expanding solar energy means reducing our reliance on fossil fuels, but it also means cutting costs and pollution because solar energy is now watt-for-watt among the most efficient and sustainable ways to produce electricity. And though it’s intermittent, it’s limitless, as opposed to finite fossil fuels whose costs will inevitably rise over time.
