Yee - should be optional.
Mandating solar panels helps move residents away from dependence on the grid (a percentage of it).
This would help solar panel businesses. I don't think it helps utility companies, which is one reason for intensive lobbying from these companies - and from Big Oil - to heavily tax green energy initiatives.

I totally agree with you that green energy is better than fossil fuel and that we are moving inevitably towards it and that it will be cheaper one day. I am just at odds with you on forcing the individual to pay to get us there faster. Not because it is a good outcome, but because those who decide what is a good outcome often rationalize what is a good outcome to justify these mandates. Where does it stop?
