Meeting at Ephrata Borough tonight was informative again to the council members (still no vote). Next months meeting might involve political or media type people. Using some props showed them how an electric meter between the solar panels and your home was nothing more than a tax on the sun. In fact a 1/3 kilowatt tax that the Borough takes before you even get to use the electric that your solar panels generate. It would be like having a 60 watt light bulb, but it only shines as bright as a 40 watt bulb because of Ephrata Borough’s Solar Tax.
Taxing of the Sun does not follow the laws set forth by Pennsylvania on Net Metering. Moreover than that it is not logical. No one that this has been explained to has ever heard of or agreed with taxing the Sun.
