88% of voters say utilities shouldn't block residential solar

"I think utilities are incredibly responsive to their customers and what this survey tells us is that customers want solar," Hopper told Utility Dive. "I don't think customers have a particular care in the world about who owns it or how it gets there, they just want to make sure it happens."

The SEIA survey also highlighted support for a 'fair' net metering policy, a 50% renewable portfolio standard for utilities and other consumer attitudes toward the market
