The federal Inflation Reduction Act includes a tax credit for installing rooftop solar panels; many states and localities offer them as well.

Available expert: 

Dr. Severin Borenstein is a professor of business administration and public policy at the University of California, Berkeley. He can discuss topics including:

  • The basic economics of rooftop solar power;
  • What “net metering” is, and why it benefits wealthy people and raises electric bills for lower-income people;
  • California’s experience establishing—and then recently reducing—incentives for installing rooftop solar, and what other states can learn as they develop their own policies; and
  • Proposals to make the energy transition more equitable.
