Featured Letter

Up on the roof

In response to the Aug. 13 letter "Behind the PR," I would like to provide information about our rooftop solar program and share our commitment to offering renewable options for our customers.

We do offer renewable energy net metering as part of our electric tariff, and have done so since the early 2000s. In 2006, we developed a rooftop solar program, which helps make installing solar panels on your home or business more affordable. Due to high demand, funding for our residential program has been exhausted for 2014; however, we will offer these rebates again next year.
