Solar customers can indeed cause the price of electricity to increase for people without solar, but only in places where many people install solar and electric utilities compensate people generously for their excess generation, a new study concluded.

    So Utilities should give incentives for new advanced non toxic battery Solar systems that can cover their ON PEAK hours and only use excess Energy Off Peak. Then EVeryone will benefit from Clean Renewable Solar Energy.

    Also Hot waterSolar systems should keep getting the max incentive. They are the best deal for the Utility and public.
