Inflation isn't just impacting the cost of road repairs. We, the tax payers, have been facing higher costs and lower real (inflation adjusted) incomes for quite some time now and have had to continue tightening our belts. The county is just going to have to do the same and if they cannot t…

The only relevant 2009 R.L. Beck study I could find was one that estimated the future impacts of distributed solar in AZ. Has this actually been updated to reflect the actual real world data that we now have? If so, can you share the link?
