Anti-Solar Bill Stalls in Kentucky Legislature

Despite significant lobbying by the state’s utility companies, the Kentucky legislature declined to pass House Bill 227, which would have allowed state regulators — and perhaps the state’s utilities — to set new rate structures that could have harmed efforts to expand residential solar in the state.

“It’s a relief to wake up knowing that the utilities’ effort to destroy rooftop solar in KY has been defeated, again,” tweeted advocacy group Kentuckians For The Commonwealth after the session ended without passage of the bill. — By Elizabeth E. Payne
