Episode #89: Michael Shea, Rooftop Solar Settlement Explained

Matt chats with Michael about the historic rooftop solar agreement reached between Rocky Mountain Power, the solar industry and advocates like HEAL in late August. Michael, who worked nearly full-time on defending rooftop solar for the past nine months, describes the negotiating process that led to the recent settlement. He reviews the outcome, which has three parts. The first is for existing solar customers; the second, for those who sign up over the next three years, and, lastly, for those who acquire solar after 2020. Overall, Matt and Michael agree the agreement, while not perfect, should be seen as a positive outcome, all things considering. For more information, check out a video Michael made, news coverage in the Deseret News & Salt Lake Tribune, and for the true diehards, a link to the negotiated settlement itself.
