The Berkeley City Council met yesterday and decided to move forward on the solar power tax-based financing system that we covered two days ago. The details still have to be smoothed out (half a year?) and then anyone can install solar in Berkeley and get them to pay for their photovoltaics, and add the cost to your tax bill over 20 years. That means you don’t need cash on hand to do something that saves you money then and there. Piece of cake. It will be hard for people to ignore the possibilities now.
