California is the first state to require solar panels on new homes. Here's why Big Brother is on to something
When a state regulatory body decrees that all new homes must have rooftop solar starting in 2020, my temperature rises. Big Brother is intruding too deeply into my personal life, I'm thinking. Shouldn't it be my call alone whether to invest in solar panels, perhaps incentivized by state tax credits or rebates? Should solar buying be simply mandated by a government bureaucracy without even a vote by our elected representatives in the Legislature?
