NPR: Utilities Fight For Revenue Lost To Solar Power


National Public Radio aired a story during the most recent Weekend Edition Saturday which was co-reported between KQED reporter Lauren Sommer, and our own Dan Boyce. The story discussed how residential solar power could have a disruptive impact on utilities, and some of them are fighting back.  As SolarCity’s Sanjay Ranchod puts it, “For acompany that has depended on a monopoly, competition from SolarCity or any other solar company is scary.” The story combined elements of an earlier story produced by Sommer with the second part of our Solar Challenge series from last year.
