Solar panel users could face fees in Missouri


In Missouri, the legislature is considering a bill to allow utility companies to charge more to buy back excess electrical power from solar panel users.

A House Utilities Committee held a hearing this week on legislation that would allow utilities and electricity providers to raise costs for customers who use solar panels. It would apply only to solar panel users who want to sell excess power back to the electric company to offset the cost of energy drawn from the grid when the panels aren’t producing reported the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
