Eunice Public Service Commissioner Clydey Holloway, is proposing a 25 dollar fee monthly fee for anyone with solar panels on their home. The fee would be paid to a utility company, such as CLECO or Entergy.
Holloway says people without solar panels are paying for solar panel owners to have service.
Rodney Richard of Carencro has solar panels on his home. He says having to pay a fee is absurd.
Holloway says he's two votes away from getting it passed sometime next year. He says if approved the fee could be assessed by utility companies statewide.
