Activists Accuse Utility of Squashing Solar Roof Panel Progress

Latino and environmental groups are moving forward with a California clean energy campaign despite legal threats against it. The campaign includes a minute-long video spoof in which a Southern California Edison executive explains his company’s desire to crush the solar panel industry and buy off Latino politicians in order to keep residents purchasing dirty energy. SCE sent the campaign’s founding groups a letter saying it would take legal action if the video wasn’t removed and claims against the utility company weren’t immediately stopped. Pacifica KPFK's Ernesto Arce has more on the story.
