SCE took 3 months to approve my solar agreement. I understand that utilities complain of excess power during solar generation hours, hence the change in Net Metering agreement. NEM 3.0 all but guarantees that you need a backup battery to make solar worthwhile. I thought that was the utilities' motive - to shift power usage away from 4p-9p, which is easy to do if you have a battery backup. If they are inhibiting batteries, they are only causing more strain on the grid during peak hours, forcing the need for expensive upgrades. Short sighted!This was from my solar provider so take it with a grain of salt, but when they were applying for permits, there was a list of pre-approved equipment they could install in order to obtain said permit. With the passing of NEM 3.0, it's very apparent to me that SoCal Edison is doing everything in its power to prevent battery backups and force consumers to continue to draw from the grid, while gleefully taking all the excess solar generated and paid out at steep discount.
