No word from Solar City regarding the Solar Panel RFI interference case 
I filed with them on August 8th of this year. I've been in touch with 
their representatives periodically who say that they are still looking 
into the matter. The last contact was a month ago and the case is now 3 
months old.

I provided Solar City with Tony-Brock Fisher's QST article on how to 
suppress solar panel RFI and also put them in touch with experts in the 
field. The most offensive noise comes on when the solar panels are lit 
by the Sun which is most likely caused by the solar panel Optimizers as 
described in Tony's article.

At this point, I'm not sure if it pays to file a complaint with the FCC 
or let the situation play out.
