Solar Power v. Power Companies

Solar power: it’s not just for rich hippies anymore. Solar has gotten cheaper, better, and easier to install in recent years. It’s a win for everyone: manufacturers, consumers, and the environment. Everyone, that is, except the traditional power companies. In many states, utilities view renewable power as a threat and they’re fighting to limit it. Here in California, utility giant PG&E is looking to reduce financial incentives to go solar.
