Installing a home solar system will soon cost more thanks to feckless Southern California Edison.
Starting July 1, Edison customers will face a $75 fee to connect to the electrical grid system. They also now will have to pay a “public-benefit fee” that will cost most homeowners about $10 a month.
It looks more like a “Southern California Edison benefit fee” to us.
The fees chip away at the financial incentive for homeowners.
For now, homeowners will still benefit from “net metering,” in which they are compensated for the energy they contribute to the electrical grid at the same rates the utility charges its residential customers.
Don’t expect this to last much longer.
The new fees stem from a vote last year by the corrupt California Public Utilities Commission. The commission is a wholly owned subsidiary of the energy industry.
