NY State Senate chooses utility profits over solving global warming

from the timesunion.com

A proposal crafted by state Sen. James Wright, a Watertown Republican, would allow businesses, schools and not-for-profits to net meter on systems of up to 2 megawatts. Systems that size are large enough to power up to 2,000 homes. Wright’s bill is back after stalling last year in the state Senate.

The bill now contains a key difference meant to defuse opposition from the utility industry, which fears writing big checks for solar power that could sprout from acres of sunbaked rooftops: Nonresidential owners would get no compensation for excess power, unlike homeowners, who get paid by the utility at the end of each year.

This is ridiculous.  The utlities by the solar energy at the wholesale  price, which is much less than what they charge the customers.  They pay the same wholesale price to other utilities when they buy electricity off the grid.  By limiting the credit back the utilities are limiting the size of the systems that businesses will buy.  Under this eviscerated bill we are much more likely to have utilities continue building global warming producing power plants. – ISW
