I support customer sited solar power. My utility provider
does not speak for me when they say all I want is the cheapest rate, regardless
of the environmental and economic consequences.
My utility should meet their legislated solar requirements
by using the customer-sited solar systems already located in their service
territory BEFORE building their own utility scale system. They cannot be
allowed to continue to let people who have invested in clean renewable energy
to twist in the wind while they line their own pockets.
My utility should have to fill these solar requirements with
a mix of residential and commercial solar systems, owned by customers and
installed on customers’ sites. They should not be allowed to just build utility
scale systems for their own profit.
As a customer, I should be able to choose to install my own
solar power system and have my utility buy my SRECs as part of satisfying their
legal requirements. I should not have to pay my utility to construct their own
solar system and then be required to continue to pay them for the power it produces
I believe that growth in Delaware’s solar industry is
important to our state’s health, environment, and economic development. In
order to meet these goals it is important that all utilities participate in a
fair and equitable manner. Utilities should not overlook the needs of their own
rate payers or member owners, by reducing a customer’s ability to directly
benefit from their own investments in renewable energy.
Please vote yes on Senate Bill 263 with Senate amendment 1.
