SolarCity Corp., the nation's largest rooftop photovoltaic developer, is hoping a new day is dawning for solar in Southeastern Pennsylvania. The San Mateo, Calif., company announced Thursday a bundle of new financing options aimed at customers in the Peco Energy Co. service territory. SolarCity and its competitors typically install their systems on customers' roofs for no money down. The campaign is aimed at reversing the shrinkage in the Pennsylvania solar market, which went into hibernation after 2011, when federal and state incentives dwindled.

Amile Jefferson is playing on the Main Line now, but he attributes part of his basketball success to playing at recreation centers and on hard courts in West and Southwest Philly. "That's kind of where you earn your stripes," he said. "You get bruised up a bit, but it helps with your overall toughness. It makes you play with heart, with aggressiveness, and with passion. If you don't, you won't last long. " Jefferson, a 6-foot-8, 190-pound forward, has made a lasting impression in his three years at Friends' Central in Wynnewood.

In a paper that is bound to generate controversy, three University of Pennsylvania bioethicists argue in a medical journal this week for the return of the mental asylum. The nation, they say, has too few inpatient beds for people with serious mental illnesses. As a result, very sick people are winding up homeless or in prison, nursing homes, and hospital emergency departments. Dominic Sisti, director of Penn's Scattergood Program for the Applied Ethics of Behavioral Healthcare and lead author of the new paper, used words like appalling and shocking to describe the current state of affairs, which he sees as both morally wrong and financially shortsighted.

Pennsylvania Democrats will go to the polls Tuesday to choose a nominee to take on Gov. Corbett after a sometimes-ugly primary campaign that has cost more than $31 million before the final bills are totaled. Tom Wolf, a York County businessman, has led in public-opinion surveys and has outspent his three rivals, mostly thanks to $10 million he contributed to his campaign. U.S. Rep. Allyson Y. Schwartz, state Treasurer Rob McCord, and former state environmental secretary Katie McGinty were trying to play catch-up to Wolf, who seized an early lead with a massive TV-advertising blitz.

Even though his father, Dave, flourished as a competitive swimmer and his 13-year sister, Colleen, is now doing the same, Sean Phelan only enjoys leisurely dips in the pool. "It just isn't my thing," the Devon Prep first baseman and pitcher said. "I've always liked sports that use a ball. " As he showed in Thursday afternoon's Bicentennial Athletic League Independence clash against archrival Holy Ghost Prep, Phelan is most comfortable on the diamond. The 6-foot-3, 210-pound senior doubled twice and earned a save as the host Tide, ranked No. 7 in Southeastern Pennsylvania by The Inquirer, posted an 8-6 triumph over the previously undefeated and No. 1 Firebirds.

Ted Dallas knew he was walking into a crisis the late-January day he accepted the job as Pennsylvania's acting secretary of the Department of Human Services. He knew that, since early December, thousands of Pennsylvanians with alcohol and drug addictions had been locked out of treatment centers. And he understood the seriousness of their situation. "For folks in the drug and alcohol world, that continuity of care and the wraparound services and keeping it consistent is particularly important," Dallas said.

She was a longtime resident of Center City. An Allentown native, Ms. Brown came to Philadelphia to attend the University of Pennsylvania, and liked the city so much that she stayed.

PRESIDENT Obama's interior secretary, Sally Jewel, recently noted that "there is a lot of misinformation about fracking. " She's absolutely right, and a Daily News editorial ("Tracking fracking") is a classic display of this ignorance. First, according to any number of regulatory experts - including top Obama administration officials - hydraulic fracturing is well-regulated and safe. Indeed, former Energy Secretary Steven Chu has stated that shale development "is something you can do in a safe way. " Second, Pennsylvania has some of the nation's strongest environmental regulations.

A year before Healthy Pennsylvania's rollout, Michael Harle, president and CEO of Gaudenzia, the drug and alcohol treatment center, was assured by top state Medicaid officials his clients would not see their health insurance change. Harle has been around. So he asked for that guarantee in writing. He didn't get it. A high-placed executive "promised me that they would get it right," he said. But "they" didn't. After Medicaid recipients began shifting to the new program on Dec. 1, "all hell broke loose," Harle said.
