Solar advocates say bill will reboot rooftop installations across state

March 1, 2023

Solar industry leaders and advocates testified in favor of a bill Wednesday that they say would revitalize the state’s solar industry after a period of stagnation. The bill, SB 664, sponsored by Sen. Brian Feldman, D-Montgomery, would increase the maximum award of a grant that funds rooftop solar installations for low- and moderate-income residents from $1,000 to $5,000. Its costs would be covered by a state fund that utilities pay into when they are below a certain threshold of solar-generated power that they are expected to produce.
