The truth is home solar is awesome and in most cases very profitable for the homeowner.

U.S. Energy Information Administration
Statistics & Analysis
Drop in petroleum demand led to rise in crude oil inventories and low refinery utilization
The U.S. Energy Information Administration's (EIA) latest Petroleum Supply Monthly shows the significant changes in petroleum markets that occurred in April, when most of the United States was under stay-at-home orders to limit the spread of coronavirus. In April, commercial crude oil inventories increased by 46.7 million barrels (10%)—the largest monthly increase in EIA data going back to 1920. U.S. refineries operated at 70% of their capacity, the lowest utilization rate in EIA's monthly data series dating back to 1985. Demand for finished petroleum products fell to 11.7 million barrels per day (b/d), the lowest level since at least 1981.
Mixed water supply conditions affect summer 2020 hydropower outlook in Pacific Northwest
On June 4, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Northwest River Forecast Center (NWRFC) released its final Pacific Northwest water supply projection for the 2020 water year, which runs from October 2019 to September 2020. The forecast shows above-average water supply in the northern half of the Columbia River Basin and below-average supply in the southern half, the opposite of last year's forecast. The below-average supply in the southern half could reduce electricity available from hydropower in the lower Columbia River Basin this summer.
NERC report outlines how pandemic mitigation could affect electric reliability this summer
Despite heightened uncertainty—stemming from efforts to slow the progression of the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19)—in demand projections, the North American Electric Reliability Corporation's (NERC) recent 2020 Summer Reliability Assessment finds that enough resources are available to meet this summer's projected peak electricity demand in most areas of the country. The Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) has the smallest anticipated reserve margin, but each of the remaining regions exceeds, or substantially exceeds, a 20% anticipated reserve margin.
U.S. natural gas exports to Mexico set to rise with completion of the Wahalajara system
Exports of natural gas by pipeline are the largest component of U.S. natural gas trade, accounting for 40% of all U.S. gross natural gas exports in 2019. EIA expects these exports to increase with the completion of the southern-most segment of the Wahalajara system, the Villa de Reyes-Aguascalientes-Guadalajara (VAG) pipeline. VAG began operations in June 2020, connecting new demand markets in Mexico to U.S. natural gas pipeline exports.
Puerto Rico's electricity generation mix changed following early 2020 earthquakes
According to data from the U.S. Energy Information Administration's (EIA) latest Power Plant Operations Report, electricity generation in Puerto Rico has shifted toward heavier reliance on petroleum following two earthquakes that struck 9 miles off the southwest coast of Puerto Rico earlier this year.
