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.
