Letter: Power utility should encourage solar power use
First Published Jan 12 2014 10:47 pm • Last Updated Jan 13 2014 10:45 am

How interesting that Rocky Mountain Power would seek to financially penalize the very people and companies that are part of the solution to our dirty air and climate change ("Rocky Mountain Power asks for 4% rate hike," Tribune, Jan 7).

I generate all my electric power from solar panels. Regardless of the decisions made, I will continue to do so, but would it not make more sense to continue to encourage more distributed power that comes from the sun for free and not from any fossil fuels? Would it not make more sense to subsidize solar on all the flat industrial roofs in our cities for the sake of our children and their future?
