Lakeland Electric should stop punishing solar homeowners
Lakeland’s municipal electric utility is singling out residents who have installed solar panels on their homes by forcing them to pay unjustified fees known as “demand charges.” Of the large utilities in Polk County, only Lakeland Electric force solar customers to pay demand charges. Typically, demand charges are additional fees based on an electric consumer’s peak usage, and they make sense for industrial and commercial businesses that draw large amounts of electricity from the grid. Charging such fees for residential solar customers is unfair and serves to punish existing solar users and discourages people from going solar. Lakeland solar homeowners should not be treated differently from other residential utility customers, and they should not be forced to pay an unjustified solar tax. I urge you to eliminate demand charges for residential solar systems in Lakeland.
