    Need to rearch this. It looks like they are asking to rate power based on whatever the current purchase price is. Right now it may be a rate decrease but that won’t be the case if they want varied rates.

    No one cares that BELCOs “program” that pays full price to the first people to go solar, will be ended for anyone else, except those already being paid full price and those who had their plans submitted by the end of august (they of course will continue to be paid at that rate)? They also limit the size so no one can live off selling solar produced power back to the grid or to neighbors.
