Three-quarters of Utahns oppose increasing electricity costs for rooftop solar customers, according to a survey commissioned by the Utah Solar Energy Association.

Tribune Editorial: New president can't turn back time on coal 3.12.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
President-elect Donald Trump has pledged to reverse the Obama administration’s regulations on coal, including the moratorium on federal leases and the Clean Power Plan. That is bringing cheers from coal country in Utah and elsewhere, but the enthusiasm should be tempered by the reality that the coal industry’s biggest challenge is not regulation. It’s the cleaner alternatives — from natural gas to the sun — which have been beating coal on cleanliness while matching it on price. At best, the cha...

SolarCity to open Florida facility 2.12.2016 SFGate: Business & Technology
ORLANDO — San Mateo’s Solar City is moving into Florida’s residential market after the state’s voters last month rejected a utility-backed ballot measure that critics said would make going solar more expensive. The largest U.S. solar panel installer, a subsidiary of Palo Alto electric car maker Tesla Motors, on Thursday said it is opening an operations center in the Orlando area and plans to expand into other areas of Florida. “It reinforces to any policymaker or regulator that when you’re making the rules, consider that the voters voted for competition and energy choice,” he said in a telephone interview. A typical SolarCity operations center employs about 100 people, a company spokesman said, and the company is hiring for sales and installation jobs at its Orlando area facility in Clermont. Musk has said that he wants to sell solar panels through Tesla’s stores so that customers can use them to power their electric vehicles and homes.

Letter: Rocky Mountain Power has it backwards 1.12.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
Rooftop solar users — deriving power from clean, safe, renewable energy — help the common good by reducing harmful air pollution. That reduction has many beneficial effects. Cleaner air makes our our lives healthier, reduces medical costs, reduces lost work time and helps us better enjoy Utah’s scenic beauty — thereby supporting our vital tourism/outdoor recreation economy. Cleaner air means less planet-damaging greenhouse gas emissions. Less consumption of utility-generated energy places less w...

Letter: Solar energy is our future, if the state doesn't get in the way 29.11.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
I am a two-time cancer survivor. Chemotherapy left me with reduced heart function — with cardiomyopathy. As I grow older, the weakening of my respiratory system becomes ever more evident. I have a personal interest in the quality of the air I breathe here in the Salt Lake valley — as do all who care for the welfare of our children, our grandchildren and our aging selves. Since moving here from Seattle 17 years ago, I have marveled at the blue skies and bright sunshine that grace our days. I thou...

Letter: Don't let Rocky Mountain Power stifle solar 29.11.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
Rocky Mountain Power can keep Utahns from installing rooftop solar without even having to raise rates. Earlier this month, it asked the Utah Public Service Commission to allow a rate and fee increase for new rooftop solar customers, and its request comes with a shortened timeline, an insufficient cost-benefit analysis and no public hearing. Even though the commission is yet to determine whether RMP will be successful in its 2014 proposal to raise fees and increase rates for solar customers,...
