Community Solar Legislation has been languishing in the Pennsylvania Legislature for years.  A recent Penn State study found that 1.8 trillion dollars are waiting to be invested in the Commonwealth should Community Solar programs be allowed.  This enabling legislation, favored by most members of both parties, has for too long been opposed and held up by utility companies who look after their self-interests and not their customers.  This opinion piece, written by the Policy Director of the Conservative Energy Network, Landon Stevens makes the case well why all states should enact legislation and policy which will benefit energy consumers.
