PA's Jim Heidell, energy and utility expert, is quoted in an article in Greentech Media. The article discusses the ways in which utility companies can collaborate and compromise with solar advocates in order to make solar energy work for all parties involved.
Commenting on this, Jim stated: “Utilities are taking a long-term view of how to participate in policy creation that’s sustainable, where customers don’t feel there’s a bait-and-switch.”

Jim continued: “A litigated process is not necessarily the best way to come to a conclusion. The collaborative process often works and can lead to better solutions where all parties are in agreement.”
Jim concluded: “You have less resistance to change if change comes slowly without suddenly taking rights away from people. It’s got to be gradual, and it takes a long time.”
