Solar panels are seen on a home in Vermont in 2010.

Right before Christmas, the Idaho Public Utilities Commission rejected a proposed settlement agreement that would have changed how folks with solar panels are paid for the excess power generated at their homes. The rejection means residents with solar panels will continue to receive the same amount for power that's put back into the grid. We talk with Idaho Power CEO Darrel Anderson and Ben Otto of the Idaho Conservation League about who wins under the current policy, and what it means for the future of solar power in Idaho.
