California to require solar panels on most new homes
« on: May 07, 2018, 06:42:40 AM »


snip~
There's no question that solar power is entering the mainstream, but California is about to give it a giant boost. The state's Energy Commission is expected to approve new energy standards that would require solar panels on the roofs of nearly all new homes, condos and apartment buildings from 2020 onward. There will be exemptions for homes that either can't fit solar panels or would be blocked by taller buildings or trees, but you'll otherwise have to go green if your property is brand new.

This is so silly, and the leftist legislature has been called on it for its short term vision.
They didn't address power loss after 20 years when the customer gives up on maintenance, or is a landlord responsible for the electric bill of the tenant because the renter didn't wash the panels?

The train to nowhere comes in many forms out there in California.

Are these the solar panels that my tax money already paid for?

Are these the solar panels that you would prevent me from installing/force me to remove (among other things) to go as much off-grid as I could?

Are these the solar panels that will benefit you more than it will benefit me?

Truth is, it supports the fraud placed on the American people.
It was Obozos Green movement that ran energy prices through the roof, then stole Taxpayers money to force the sale of this fraud and further drive our economy in debt.
Electricity prices are 3 times higher than when the Marxist took office and the left continues to push this fraud through.

The simple solution is nuclear energy, but the left doesn't want it nor does the RINO party, they make shitloads of money off of it.

If I lived in California I'd go to the Dollar store and get a few of those cheap little solar stake lites with the panels and stick 'em on the roof of my house..... :popcorn:

Leftists don't care about growth or market. It's all about control, control, control, and more control.

Take note how Yahoo opens with a lie and moves on without accreditation to the claim.
Fact is, the only reason solar exists is because of Taxpayers being ripped off so others can hopefully lower their electric rates that have "Necessarily Skyrocketed" under Obozos 'Green energy plan', misnomer and a lie.

I hope Trump tackles this one next.

Well it will be on new homes, and other in the area will be picking up the tap for a higher electric rates as less money is coming in.   That should bump up new homes about 5000$ or more.  Then you will have the upkeep on it + the power bill.  Then you have smog fog and clouds in the cities down below.  What a deal for young people.

They have to replace them every few decades, correct?

By the time this becomes law there will be all sort of exemptions and billions in subsidies. It will be a train wreck.
