State To Rule On Solar Energy Debate

posted by John Baibak - 

A bipartisan coalition of 79 House and  Senate members is asking the Department of Public Utilities to reject a  utility-backed proposal to cap the amount of credits that community  solar customers get on their bills.  

The coalition has sent a letter to  DPU Chair Angela O'Connor expressing support for expanding access to  solar energy statewide. 

The group says the proposal would put community  solar at a significant disadvantage compared to rooftop solar.  

Acton  Senator Jamie Eldridge, chair of the Senate Green Caucus, says it's  shameful utility companies want to decrease access to solar energy for  millions of Massachusetts residents.

There is no indication as to when the State DPUC will rule.
