Dear editor: On Thursday, Nov. 30, the Arkansas Public Service Commission (PSC) will weigh arguments from rooftop solar advocates against arguments by SWEPCO and Entergy on the amount private landowners should pay to send our excess solar power to the grid. The Arkansas Legislature has required the PSC to set a fee to compensate utilities for their cost, if any, for net-metering. Net-metering refers to credits solar homes receive for the electricity we add to the grid. These credits are deducted from our bills when we use more power than we consume.
