Suppose that I purchased a typical home and then replaced light fixtures and appliances to reduce my electric usage. Would Rocky Mountain Power propose that I pay a special fee to compensate them for my reduced usage? Seems very unlikely. Why then would they expect me to pay this new fee if I install solar panels or any other self-generation technology to reduce my electric use?

Talisker Corp., which owns the ski terrain at PCMR and the neighboring Canyons Resort, stated in papers filed in 3rd District Court it would not oppose PCMR’s motion to stay an eviction from the land on one condition: PCMR posts a bond that will most likely be in the millions of dollars.
