    Quick summary. Rate 59 is a tax on solar generation that Xcel charges DG owners. For example even if you have batteries; If you produce 1000kWh export 0 and import 0 you pay ~$36 due to the decreased revenue to Xcel from kWh sales. Behold our elected officials discussing this tax.

    The debate starts at the ~11:17 mark on the video.

    Do the McDonalds there get to charge you for a Big Mac if you grill your own burgers, too?
