Is Solar Energy Too Cheap and Easy in California?

Hosted by

California homeowners who install solar panels can sell power they don't use back to the utility companies who manage the grid. That can bring the homeowners' bills down to zero. Now, so many consumers have gone solar that the utilities are losing serious money and they're fighting back. We get background from KCRW's Saul Gonzalez, then hear about proposals to modify the status quo.
