WASHINGTON, D.C.and MILWAUKEE, WI – Today, RENEW Wisconsin and We Energies announced that We Energies will drop its plans to tax its customers who own their own solar panels. The proposal would have forced people who have invested in solar energy to pay extra fees and was widely seen as an attempt to monopolize the solar industry.
To advance efforts to educate residential solar consumers across America and pave the way to a positive solar buying experience, the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) launched an updated SEIA Residential Consumer Guide to Solar Power.
Version 4 - Updated June 2018 In an effort to make 'going solar' as effortless and streamlined as possible, SEIA has developed a Guide to Solar Power tailored for residential consumers. This 6 page guide informs potential solar customers about the financing options available, contracting terms to be aware of, and other useful tips. This guide will be updated regularly.
