New Organization to Represent Solar Owners

As the saying goes … “help us to help you.” For the past ten years those of us who heard the calls for change because our planet climate is changing, not for the better, and our use of fossil fuels is in large part the reason. We, both pioneers (pre 2010) and current investors in solar energy have for the most part “gone it alone.” When we chose an installer we looked in the yellow pages, or with luck, knew someone who could make a recommendation, and if we chose the wrong installer … we were on our own. But it is after the installation, the system is running well, that we are truly alone in deciding who to broker our Renewable Energy Credits (RECs) or after 2010 Solar Renewable Energy Credits (SRECs), who to turn to when the electric utility decides to not credit your Net-Metering, or the town Assessors tax you for personal property on your solar installation.
