Join rooftop solar defenders to tell the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) to reject the plans of corporate utilities like PG&E to impose high costs on households with rooftop solar panels: large monthly fees to connect to the grid and much lower payment for electricity they sell back to the grid.
Soon the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) is expected to release a new proposal that will determine the fate of rooftop solar from now on. There will then be a 30-day public comment period, followed by a final vote of the five-person commission.
The Solar Rights Alliance, an organization of solar panel installers, says, “We don’t know what the CPUC will propose. We do know that utility lobbyists are still pushing a Solar Tax and deep cuts to the credit for sharing surplus energy with the grid.”
The Solar Rights Alliance is hosting “the biggest pro-solar event yet,” Everyone Under the Sun Rally & Festival at the State Capitol, to remind the CPUC, Governor Newsom, and the media:
- No Solar Tax or other changes that make rooftop solar unaffordable for everyday people.
- Keep rooftop solar growing so that more Californians can get it, not fewer.
