"He told my land lord that I had to move out because I have solar power," Bruton said.
Curtis Bruton is upset with the city of Brownfield after an inspector told him he count not use solar panels to provide electricity to his home-a school bus he converted into a mobile home.
"I feel they are scared that people will see me living here with this solar panel and other people will get involved and they will lose their business," Bruton said.
Bruton said he thinks it has to do with the city losing money, and he said that is not fair.
"It felt like I was being ripped off," Bruton said. "Cheated and that the city of Brownfield is hating on me because I can produce my own power."
I tried contacting the city inspector several times Tuesday morning, after I could not find the ordinance on the city website.
He did not return my calls but he did get a hold of Bruton.
"About an hour later the city inspector, Mitch, called me back and told me it was not in his regulation city code and I could keep it up."
Bruton said the city inspector told him he would get a ban on solar panels and Bruton could either get city electricity or more out of town.
