Environmental and housing groups are worried the decision by the Public Service Commission is hurting the development on renewable energy in New York, and so now they want the legislature to get involved.
The decision was to move community solar grids away from the pricing structure known as net metering, which gives owners credit for electricity genered by their systems that goes back into the grid.
They can then use that credit when their systems aren't generating any power.
Critics say the new pricing system is more complicated, and that is driving away developers and investors.
Here to explain more are Chris Carrick, who is the Energy Manager at the Central New York Regional Planning and Development Board, and Janet Handal, President of the Waterside Tenants Association in New York City.
