...the environment," said Eleanor Sterling, chief conservation scientist of the museum's Center for Biodiversity and Conservation, at the press event.

Wisconsin energyenergy company trying to make solar less affordable —by weinenkel : "We Energies (the name technically means 'My energy and not yours') is proposing a plan that would implement: a) Changes to Net Metering : We Energies proposes to change how and when solar production is valued on a customer’s energy bill. Net metering of clean energy systems would change from annual netting to monthly netting, while also reducing the price credited for solar retail rate to ‘avoided cost’ rate (roughly 14 cents/kwh to 3 cents/kwh). This change would limit customer optimization of solar system sizing and lengthen subsequent return on investment. b) New Demand Charge : We Energies is proposing a new charge for any and all clean energy system owners. All customers that have invested in a renewable energy system on their own property will be required to pay We Energies $3.80 per kW per month (based on the size of the system). For example, a homeowner who installed a 4 kW solar system (average system size in We Energies’’ territory) will be required to pay $192 annually to We Energies. c) Restricting Third-Party Ownership (Leasing) of Solar : We Energies seeks to ban any solar or wind project from interconnecting and net metering with the grid if it is not owned by the customer."
