re: California officially becomes first in nation mandating solar power for new homes
I was working in CA a few years back and the big story at the time was that the state was ending subsidies for people who put up solar panels. Not sure if it was because the state was losing a shite ton of money or if the utility providers were bitching about it.

Which is why I said "not as dependent" instead of "no longer dependent".

How long do solar panels last?

This will be fine in people in Southern Cali where it’s almost always sunshine and clear weather. But what about further north were they have long periods of cloudy and foggy weather?

Oh, I agree. That's why I always laugh when they talk about separating from the US. They wouldn't last a week without major utilities coming in from out of state

This is a brilliant move for California since they’ve got two of the top five foggiest areas in all of North America.

Most panels gradually reduce to about 80% of rated power by year 20. That's a pretty good lifespan

It’s the right thing to do in the long run. Humans are smart and can figure out a way to mitigate the extra cost, and whoever does it first will become very rich.

$10,000 minimum extra cost to build a home but it’s ok because your electricity bill will be 2 dollars cheaper every month!!

What a waste of time.

re: California officially becomes first in nation mandating solar power for new homes
Wow, a conservative advocating for government-mandated housing appliances? Jesus Christ

This is nothing but corporate welfare

Let the market gradually and organically figure out a way to adopt green technology without hurting consumers

Don’t hurl this stuff onto Americans when it is still prohibitively expensive

xiv, I get that you are an extremely wealthy individual who doesn’t have to worry about pet political projects substantially affecting your financial livlihood, but think of middle
Class homeowners

But those costs would be offset by lower utility bills over the 30-year lifespan of the solar panels.


Too bad the systems dont last nearly anywhere that long...
