3@3 on Solar PV: Refuting the Anti-Solar Argument that Everyone Else’s Rates Go Up When People Go Solar

Jenn Runyon, Chief Editor of Renewable Energy World and Paula Mints, Chief Market Research Analyst with SPV Market Research discuss three hot topics in the global solar industry for three minutes each. 

Today we focus on one topic that has a lot of spokes. And it’s this: refuting the claim that when people go solar, everyone else’s bills increase. We’ll take three of the age-old arguments about how residential solar increases rates for non-solar customers and explain why those arguments do not hold water.

We’ll also introduce our new sponsor, the Interstate Renewable Energy Council, aka IREC.
