Hello, Mr. Bethea,

I would be interested in discussing your project with you.
I may not be the most knowledgeable person to interview on this subject, but I do have a lot of speaking experience (as you can see from my signature, below). I also have solar panels on my house, but I am not in DC at present, so it partly depends on how you want to conduct the interview, technically.

Thank you very much for reaching out to the DC SUN list serve.

Peace & good health,

Subject: [Solar United Neighbors of D.C.] DCRA targets
Rooftop Solar

Solar Neighbors,
Rooftop solar energy systems are
under attack by DCRA in a zoning appeal case by ANC-1C,
scheduled for May 15. Help protect the city’s drive toward
100% renewable energy by writing to the Board of Zoning
Adjustment (BZA) in support of this appeal.
case is about a developer who wants to add a new upper floor
to a row house in an RF-1 neighborhood that would cut the
solar energy production next door by 35%. This is contrary
to RF-1 zoning regulations that prohibit additions to
buildings that interfere with neighboring solar energy
production. In this case, DCRA says that the project is not
an “addition” but instead a “new” larger building
and that, therefore, the solar panels are not
If the BZA buys this illogical
reasoning, it will set a new precedent to allow developers
across the city to build illegal upper floor additions that
ignore these rules.
Write and email to by
May the 8th, subject line “Case 19961,” and state
your support for this appeal and opposition to this
misrepresentation of the zoning
regulations. Support ANC-1C’s appeal – BZA
case # is 19961.
