Logan City trying to help residents navigate misinformation about solar power

Logan Mayor Craig Petersen is pleased that more and more people are making the decision to install solar panels on their homes. The mayor said he is concerned, however, that some misinformation has been distributed by commercial providers.

He said for that reason Logan City is now requiring that before people get solar panels on their homes they need to attend a seminar.

“The seminar presents its policies,” Petersen said at Tuesday’s meeting of the Logan Municipal Council. “We don’t create any preference for any individual supplier.

“They are never mentioned. We simply tell them what our policies are so that at least people will hear it from us and not somebody else.”

The mayor said the seminars are held each Monday at 9 a.m. in the Logan Light and Power building and Director Mark Montgomery does a good job.
