Senate committee approves controversial solar measure with changes

A Senate committee Tuesday approved a revamped solar-energy bill, but the changes did not satisfy the rooftop-solar industry and environmental groups.

The Senate Community Affairs Committee voted 6-3 to back the measure (SB 1024), which has drawn fierce debate because of how it would affect the industry and people with rooftop-solar systems. The bill deals with what is known as “net metering,” which governs charges and credits between electric utilities and customers who have rooftop systems.
