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.

Editorial: Utah should go slow on ending clean energy tax benefits 19.11.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
A gathering stampede among members of the Utah Legislature to curtail or end state tax breaks for clean energy technologies is based on the idea that those industries are doing well and so no longer need the help. Maybe not. But our lungs still do. The point of tax breaks is not always to help a particular business or industry do well. It’s to encourage people to do things that benefit the state as a whole. Government action to encourage the use of rooftop solar and low- or no-emissions cars ma...

A proposal to extend tax credits for electric and other alternative fuel vehicles garnered a favorable recommendation this week, but only by a narrow margin. And another committee recommended phasing out a state tax credit for residential solar installations, which is projected to take a toll on the state budget in 2016 — $20 million, up from less than $1 million annually, as Utah experiences a boom of solar inst...

Letter: Rocky Mountain Power's anti-solar money-grab 15.11.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
Rocky Mountain Power’s money-grab (“Rocky Mountain Power could charge solar households more through new rate calculation proposal,” The Tribune, Nov. 9) ensures that no new Utah solar installation can ever break even on upfront investment. Their solar penalty rationale runs contrary to clean energy initiatives nationwide, covering 20% of our population where renewable energy policies produce economic stimulus and clean air benefits. Solar power opponents claim that incentivizing subsidies for re...
