Rocky Mountain Power’s plan would nearly triple monthly customer charges and peak-time usage charges for rooftop solar customers.

The company says these new charges are necessary to create an equitable system between solar and non-solar customers.

ThinkProgress reports that under the proposal, new solar customers would pay a $15 per month service charge, compared to $6 per month now; a $9.02 per kilowatt demand charge for “on-peak” demand; and a 3.81 cents per kilowatt hour charge for electricity.

Currently, if rooftop solar owners generate more electricity than they use, the utility company buys the excess power at the retail rate .

The company projects that this shift is worth $667 million over 20 years.
