Do less-weathy homeowners subsidize green tax credit?

Letter to the editor

November 07, 2011

In our haste to give tax breaks to developers and homeowners with the cash to install complying green energy sources, has anyone put forth a plan to make up the accompanying cash shortfall to the county? Where will the lost revenue be made up? If there is a plan, great! If there's not a plan, that means the average mom and pop homeowner will be subsiding developers and those with the cash to comply. It will also mean that Calvin Ball and the rest of our County Council with good intentions will be bitten by the law of unintended consequences. I anxiously await your follow-up piece on how these tax breaks will be funded.
