Letter: Obtaining Solar Panels

To the Editor:

In light of the recent storm and power outages, I began to think more about solar power. If our home had solar panels and battery storage, we may not have been able to operate the air conditioning, but we could have run fans, had lights on, charged phones, and maybe cycled the refrigerator on a few times. I also wondered why Dominion does not incentivize businesses and residences to obtain solar power systems. It would help with energy demand and would take the pressure off of Dominion to restore power after outages. In all of the literature Dominion sends to us, never have I seen offers, incentives, or even ideas about obtaining solar power systems. Food for thought.
