Not with me, Draigflag. Exhibit "A", my bank account.

Solar City and others pulled out of Nevada. The state also didn't grandfather current PV owners under the previous rules, so their fees shot up.

The Hawaiian state owned utility ALSO "declared war" on solar panel owning homeowners.

I'm a bit fuzzy, but either Hawaii or Arizona wanted to impose huge fees on solar panel owners, but settled on a smaller amount.

But, I feel, even a small fee is a huge loss for solar panel owners, because that "cracks open the door" to future rate increases.

I call that "nibbling". Gov't will say, "Please, vote for a small 0.05% tax increase for a special project we promise to take it away after 5 years."

Well, after 5 years new politicians are elected and they say, "HEY! We never made that promise to take away that tax after 5 years. It was the other guys. That tax wasn't so bad was it? So let's keep this tax going. Thanks suckers!" Again, I call it "nibbling".

An imperceptible nibble starts their ball rolling.
