California mandates solar panels
for homes built in 2020 and later

Fox News, by Bradford Betz

Original Article

Posted By:NorthernDog, 12/6/2018 9:29:25 AM

California lawmakers on Wednesday officially approved a measure that mandates all homes built in the Golden State in 2020 and beyond be solar-powered. The new standards were approved earlier this year and voted on unanimously by the California Building Standards Commission, the Orange County Register reported. Officials heralded the move as a “historical undertaking” that “will be a beacon of light for the rest of the country.” The provisions add an estimated $10,000 to the cost of building a single-family home – including more than $8,400 for installing solar and roughly $1,500 for energy efficiency. Proponents of these requirements, however

Should be fun to see how well they are maintained. The glass often gets cloudy, soot-covered, and eventually breaks - especially during quakes.

Pass the pop corn. This "FEEL GOOD" garbage is nothing more than a money grab from contractors. Can you see house sales nose dive?
Only the emaciated vegan tree huggers will be the buyers.

This will add to the costs of already overpriced real estate and continue to drive people out of the state.

As long as the federal government doesn´t bail out California for their insane ideas and the cost of them, they can dig themselves deeper into the pit as they wish.

#2 No problem. The older homes will be required to "upgrade" with solar before owner is allowed to sell. Count on it.

Good. This will require cutting down every tall tree within shading distance. Thereby reducing the fire danger.

There must be some sort of concerted effort being made on this, because just yesterday I heard about some wacko group trying to get something like that introduced into the upcoming session of the Texas Legislature.

They have an agenda and they are going to ram it through and keep working until people relent or the get some weak legislator to wimp out due to bad media press attacking them.

Like it´s not expensive enough to build a house in California now! I wonder if the insurance companies will pay for this when the houses that recently burned up in the fires are rebuilt? They better hurry up and build before 2020- if they can get through all the permitting process in the next year! One thing for sure, insurance rates will go up, regardless.

Elon Musk´s solar company, along with his car company and his rocket company are facing a very real threat of Trump cutting off access to your wallet.
The Chinese, who make most of the solar panels, are likewise facing losing a place at the trough.
So look for this kind of thing happening all over the country.

California is the real life version of Atlas Shrugged. They keep making so many regulations "for the good of the people" that they are destroying any incentive to build, relocate, or open or operate a business there. The only reason to live there is if you want to live in a nanny state where all of your decisions are made for you by the government.

Years ago (in the 1970s) a very large multi-state development company that I worked for, that build entire communities of many hundreds of homes, discarded the idea of installing solar because it was ineffective. For many reasons it could not support a home’s entire power needs. The best it could do would be to act as backup. To heat a swimming pool. Not much else.

Another screwball Jerry Brown idea.

No matter which state you live in, I wouldn´t by buying anything solar at this time. See what happens in California. The price of solar should drastically come down. So it won´t hurt to wait it out for a few years.
The demise of this law will be the people won´t maintain their systems. They´re only good for 20 to 30 years anyway so what happens then.

Of course they could have mandated that every government building, school, university, hospital, warehouse building, and mall parking lots could have been pushed to install solar panels instead, and they would cover FAR more acreage than a bunch of homes, particularly new built homes.

It would reduce the carbon footprint, lower the energy use(costs) for every gov´t department, which would also mean they would needn´t need as much $$ in future budgets.

I would say there goes the housing industry, but California has likely already destroyed it with sky high prices. No wonder people are leaving the state. Nothing will be fixed either. The corrupt left has a chokehold on California at the federal level, and the state level. It will get worse.

$10K per home? Yeah, right. And the bullet train will only cost $3B. If its mandated, the cost will easily go to $50K or higher. We reduced our San Jose water use by half, killed most of our yard and what happened? They doubled our water rates. We now live in Michigan and love it. Escaped just in time apparently...

And these Einsteins will be surprised that the higher costs of housing in the state will further aggravate the lack of "affordable" housing. Of course their solution will be to mandate that the builders lower their prices for a certain portion of the population, forcing them the raise their prices on everyone else to offset the lost revenue.

It´s the leftist way.

Assuming it worked and a percentage of homes go off the grid. Do you think power companies aren´t going to distribute their costs over the remaining customers?

Most solar homes are never fully off the grid: they retain commercial power for emergencies, panel failures, and long gray weather conditions (wildfires?).
Power plants can´t be shut down and started ´at will´. They will run all the time, anyway.

Absolutely ridiculous. Solyndra, anyone?

I´ve been to California, from San Diego to San Francisco and while it is a very pretty state, I don´t see the appeal of living there. With stunts like this, the outrageous taxation as well as high housing costs, etc. I don´t understand why anyone would want to live there.

It´s worse than Europe in some aspects(!) and I´ve lived in Europe, as a citizen, for many years...so I know.

Don’t forget it costs a lot of money per year to clean these panels because the more dust and dirt that accumulates on them the less efficient they are. These panels will add additional costs to construction for structural engineering the new loads on the roof framing, walls and foundations as well as additional costs for all of the supporting structures. Next we will see the all wise and knowing state mandate guacamole be served at every meal. Thus giving the avocado farmers in Mexico a real boost in sales.

Like Electric cars, the main drawback is storage capacity of the energy created.

And like others have already stated, an installation cost of 10K is a pipedream.

The only person who will be happy with this is Elon Musk, darling of the Leftist Dreamers.

California is not the only state infected by communists, nor are we the epicenter sending voter-agents across the country to spread the virus. Every state, whether blue, red, or purple, already have the pathogens in their systems.

California, New York, Illinois, Massachusetts and so many others are the laboratories where new strategies and tactics are tried, and then farmed out to the purple and red states. If the Republicans were truly anti-communists, we could have a fighting chance but that is just not reality. It is the legislatures and governors that pass these oppressive laws, not the voters of a state. The Dims picked up control of more legislatures and governor offices this mid-term.

California is my birthright and I’m staying. Why move when there is no “safe” state that will not be taken over slowly and stealthily in the same way that tarnished the Golden State. Each of us has to fight for our state, for our country, and right now for our President. Donald Trump is our only hope to save our Constitution.

Moving out of socialist states is not the answer, it’s just moving pieces around on the game board. Did we all abandon America when Obola was in charge? Stay, fight, win.

MAGA

If you live in Palm Springs, sunshine probably hits your rooftop 320 days a year.

If you live in Eureka, 40+ inches of rain hits your rooftop every year - 10 times as much as in Palm Springs. (23+ inches falls on Nancy´s house in San Francisco every year.)

If there´s any one state that´s an unlikely candidate for mandatory solar panels across-the-state, it would be California.

(But that´s just the common sense in me... and what do I know, compared with the California Building Standards Commission?)

#7, understand that the business folks who will benefit greatly from ENFORCED PURCHASING of their (probably overpriced, since the buyer MUST BUY) solar systems will be very, very interested in all state legislatures pushing this kind of law.

Businesses LOVE customers being required to purchase their wares. And they will send money back to the legislators as bribes and campaign contributions in great numbers.

Look at ethanol. Bad idea, costs more, lowers gas mileage, harms all small engines that are not run with great regularity, yet can the 200 million people that hate it get it stopped? Of course not, the corn farmers and the ethanol distillers have the legislatures all bribed and paid up, can´t stop it.

Solar panels on homes will be the same if we let it get a foothold. Kill this in the beginning or have it forever.

Too late, #13. The liberal virus has already spread from Commiefornia to Washington, Oregon, Colorado, Arizona and to a certain extent back east. If you meet new neighbors moving in and they say they are from California, sell your home quickly and move to the Midwest.

Residents may brag that California has a lot of industry and opportunities but you have to live in misery, crawl on freeways, pay outrageous taxes and suffer fools for politicians to take advantage of them. It may be worth it for some but not if you want to stay sane. Just look at Pelosi, Moonbeam, Feinstein, Maxine, Schiff and Harris, those wild buggy eyes and insane rhetoric say it all.

Police sources: New evidence suggests

Chicago - Two law enforcement sources with knowledge of the investigation told CNN that Chicago Police believe Jussie Smollett paid two men to orchestrate the assault. The brothers, who were arrested Wednesday, were released without charges Friday after Chicago police cited the discovery of "new evidence." The sources told CNN that the two men are now cooperating fully with law enforcement. Smollett told authorities he was attacked early January 29 by two men who were "yelling out racial and homophobic slurs." He said one attacker put a rope around his neck and poured an unknown chemical substance on him.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, in the aftermath of Amazon’s 25,000-job snub of the city, believes New York’s workers can do better than toiling for the internet giant. Speaking at her delayed inauguration in the Bronx, the first-year congresswoman received a raucous greeting from some 300 giddy constituents Saturday at the Renaissance School for Musical Theater and Technology. “We do not have to settle for scraps in the greatest city in the world,” said Ocasio-Cortez two days after Amazon backed off its commitment to open a new Queens facility offering thousands upon thousands of new jobs. “We did see that this

Sen. Kamala D. Harris (D-Calif.) is running to become the first black female president. But in the early days of the campaign, she’s had to answer questions about the “legitimacy” of her “blackness.” Online, stories have circulated suggesting that Harris is not African American because her parents are immigrants and she spent some of her childhood in Canada. During an appearance on “The Breakfast Club” radio show Monday, hosts DJ Envy and Charlamagne Tha God asked Harris about that. Harris pushed back. “I’m black, and I’m proud of being black.

Amazon’s announcement Thursday that it is abandoning plans to construct a second corporate headquarters New York City is a catastrophic loss for the city, New York state and the metropolitan region. As a New Yorker, I find it immensely disappointing to see the immediate economic impacts and future economic losses of this unfortunate move. I wholeheartedly believe that New York is a global city that should always strive to diversify its economy and compete on the world stage. Amazon would have created more than 25,000 jobs in New York City with an average annual salary of over $150,000. The

This is just — look the only national emergency is that our president is an idiot.” Coulter did praise the president regarding the courts by saying, “In defense of Trump supporters and those who fell for his

Sen. Kamala D. Harris (D-Calif.) is running to become the first black female president. But in the early days of the campaign, she’s had to answer questions about the “legitimacy” of her “blackness.” Online, stories have circulated suggesting that Harris is not African American because her parents are immigrants and she spent some of her childhood in Canada. During an appearance on “The Breakfast Club” radio show Monday, hosts DJ Envy and Charlamagne Tha God asked Harris about that. Harris pushed back. “I’m black, and I’m proud of being black. I was born black. I will die black,”

The GOP Majority Leader in the Senate persuaded President Donald Trump to not veto the GOP’s flawed border security bill by promising to back a national emergency construction of border walls, according to insider leaks to the establishment media. The Washington Post reported that “Trump had been leaning against supporting the congressional spending bill but relented after several conversations with [Majority Leader Sen. Mitch] McConnell, who then announced his agreement to go along with an emergency declaration.” One reason for Trump’s last-minute opposition is that congressional leaders conducted the negotiations without significant White House involvement.

The two hottest commodities in the Democratic Party are Ilhan Omar and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Earlier this week, Omar exhibited stunning ignorance in her hostile questioning of Elliott Adams Abrams. Similarly, Ocasio-Cortez has often displayed a surprising lack of knowledge for someone who apparently is a college graduate. Don’t get me started on the “Green New Socialism.” But she outdid herself yesterday. The context was Amazon’s announcement that it would not, after all, build a second corporate headquarters in Long Island City, which I understand is close to, but not within, Ocasio-Cortez’s district. The project reportedly would have entailed

Former Massachusetts Gov. Bill Weld launched a presidential exploratory committee in New Hampshire Friday, making him the first Republican officially eying a longshot GOP primary challenge to President Donald Trump. “I’m here because I think our country is in grave peril,” Weld said at an announcement at a “Politics and Eggs” breakfast in New Hampshire, a frequent stop for presidential candidates. “I cannot sit quietly on the sidelines any longer.” "We cannot sit passively as our precious democracy slips quietly into darkness," he said. Weld, who served as governor in the Bay State from 1991 to 1997, was the Libertarian Party
