Invitation To Comment:
The Federal Trade Commission will hold a one-day workshop to explore competition and consumer protection issues that may arise when consumers generate their own electric power by installing solar photovoltaic (PV) panels – a practice known as solar distributed generation (DG). The workshop will discuss specific topics, including:
1) The current state of the solar power industry, and anticipated technological advancements;
2) Current regulatory approaches to compensating consumers for the power they generate, with a particular focus on net metering laws and regulations;
3) Competition among solar DG firms, between solar DG firms and regulated utilities, and between solar generation and other power generation technologies; and
4) Consumer protection issues, including how consumers get the information necessary to decide whether to install solar PV panels.
The workshop will take place on June 21, 2016, in the Constitution Center auditorium at 400 7th Street S.W., Washington, DC 20024.
I don't own a tsla, but I do have solar with solar city and its 100% a scam as I have posted many times. I feel sorry for Sc shareholders, they have been cast aside for the almighty buck. I covered awhile back, but I will be in again soon. The lawsuits will begin almost instantly!
indeed but you forgot one thing. Musk bought musk with Obammas help and your/ our money. Its fraud at its roots. the money obamma gave to spacex then went to tesla and now is being used to buy soar city . Jesus is no one smart enough to see the fraud. He is going down, its just a matter of time. That is of course unless hillary wins , then its mo money to musk. He is already useing our money to fund hillary's campaign. Its shear absurd that they can do this. Vote TRump and stop the crime, or at least have some chance to stop the crime. This could turn out to be the biggest criminal deal since the banking colaspe
There will be no vote Musk controls both companies and spacex. he has the backing of the dems so it will fly through wallsteet. It criminal but it happens
Follow my posts. A solar lease from solar city will truthfully make you have a tiny utility bill BUT you will have a huge lease or ppa bill. Its 100% a scam. Your 8K system will cost you 20K and you could not have spent that much in the 20 years you signed up for. Panels for free. I think not. Its just a con game that elon & lyndon dreamed up to screw consumers. Just google solar city scam and follow the links. There are many. The ftc, bbb, consumer affairs, or yelp. It doesn't matter where you go its a scam in every place.
indeed it is. I #$%$ myself with glee when I heard 2 crooks are combining to make 1. I suspect that one bro may kill the other once things start to topple. years down the road this will be the headline of the century
You don't have to trust my opinion as a customer. Just google solar city scam, or go to the consumer affairs site or the bbb site and read for yourself. Keep in mind there are 5* reviews here also. Total Sc plantd reviews. Wrap your head around why someone would go to a complaint site and leave positive feedback. Truth be told they wouldn't. Funny there are only 5* and 1* with the 1* being everyone who has solar and the 5* solar city planted feedback. I can say this 100% get into a 20 yr lease or ppa with solar City and yes your utility bills will be less but you will still have them. In addition you will be paying a lease payment that is far higher than your utility ever was. Your house will be worth less AND you will have a 2.9% esculator on your loan payment. Over teh 20 years its almost 80% higher than day 1. With all this solar city is 100% a scam.
This will be his final mistake and his empire will come crashing down. Especially if Hillary losses and free money ceases to exist for all his sordid games.
Absolutely. when going back 10 years my local utility is up 11%. They lied to me so I am sure they lied to people in every area they are in. It numbers in the thousands, the people who have filed and complained to the consumer sites of bb , consumer affairs, ftc, yelp and more. I maintain its 100% a scam and anyone who thinks they are saving money by going solar with solar city is delusional. trust me they are out there, and there are many of them also. The point I am trying to make is that NO-ONE can save by going solar with a ppa or lease from solar city.
and so it is. Elon bough some also with money he got for spacex which was money they got from obamma, and carbon credits. Pure criminal
you can't they have that in the contract you must use arbitration and pay the $1200 fee. They know they are #$%$ and had lawyers draw up air tight lease contracts
