The question of whether there is cross subsidy of solar houses from those without is a complex one. Access to the electricity grid is a public good, in the same way that a road provides access to all (despite the fact that some drive more than others). There are many imbalances in how much reliance on the grid individual households have including air conditioning use at peak times, distance from infrastructure and in some cases whether or not you have solar.
