Solar energy and the 'poisoned chalice' Moran Lee of UT San Diego

Do we want to see Arizona become a landscape of fields of solar or as a leader of mandated roof top solar where solar should be?  In our own backyards and on our roofs with localized substations.  The roofs and backyards are already dedicated 'used' space.  Why destroy more wildscape and possibe agriculture sites?Commissioner Ferrn was also quoted a saying: he praised California for its leading role on energy and climate policy, while warning that its utilities "would still dearly like to strangle rooftop solar if they could."By order of the state legislature (Assembly Bill 327), the commission is poised to overhaul how much cstomers can be rewarded for generating their own solar electricity. Ferron, a former executive at Deutsche Bank and Saloman Brothers, warned that zealous legislators with little experience in energy matter have handed the commission "a poisoned chalice."Read More a UT

I'm kinda picky when it comes to how the system looks. I didn`t want wires in my garage. Wayne and his crew put the conduit in the attic and I waw very pleased. The installation could not look any better!! I am super satisfied with the system, and Solorworks. With the tax credits, I will have my solar hot water heater paid for in less than 2 years and I am no longer dependent on propane and the ever increasing prices.

We would most definitely hire this contractor again. We can also recommend him as the most reliable and most professional contractor we have ever dealt with in the 10 years we have lived in Sedona. He and his crew is outstanding.

Again, I can HIGHLY recommend this contractor!

Solarworks and owner Wayne Espeland, Matt and the whole crew are the best. Very professional and a great job done on time and within budget.

We met SolarWorks at a county home show along with ten or more other companies. We interviewed all the companies. We changed the size of the system we were considering (larger). SolarWorks had one sales rep (Matt) who consistently worked with us, pleasantly and honestly. The workers were neat, clean and kept our home site that way too. The building inspector said he hadn`t seen a job done with the thoroughness he observed.
