Minnesota regulators voted this week to create the nation’s first value-of-solar tariff.
Mosaic’s new partnerships with RGS Energy and Sungage Financial should make it easier for home and business owners to secure affordable financing for rooftop solar installations.
Rooftop solar panels combined with battery storage have very real potential to destroy the reigning grid utility model, according to a study released this week by the Rocky Mountain Institute. And the destruction could happen quickly.
