Episode #55: Michael Shea, Rooftop Solar

Michael, HEAL’s Policy Associate, who manages our coal and renewables work, joins the podcast to talk about a very important issue that has played out the past few weeks: How Provo is making rooftop solar policy! He chats with Matt about the growth of solar and about how Provo Energy and the Provo Council only heard one side of the story. They also discuss the council’s recent vote, how it will harm solar and finally speculate (rightfully, it turns out) that Provo might be reconsidering its decision! Lastly, they talk about the BIG fight yet to come, when Rocky Mountain will soon seek to slap various fees on solar power. To help HEAL defend solar, sign up for our Citizen Activist Program. And if you own rooftop solar, let us know! We’ll send you special updates.
