TEP slow fixing its problems cutting home solar

UPDATE, 9/29: TEP was out today, and may have finally fixed the problem, at least for now. DRP

TUCSON -- I am a proud producer of clean energy from the Arizona sun, right here in downtown Tucson. But I'm having a problem with Tucson Electric Power, a Unisource corporation.

For at least a month, TEP's powerline from the pole to my house has been putting out too much voltage, shutting down my solar system. This limits the solar energy I can produce, and costs me money.

TEP has been slow to address the problem, meaning everyday less clean energy is produced.

TEP has a great home solar program, but they must be more responsive and fast to fix problems on their end.
