Rooftop solar is a classic California success story - epitomizing the spirit of innovation, progress and leadership that makes the state great.
Today our strong net metering program makes sure that California families, businesses, schools and public agencies that go solar receive fair credit on their utility bills for the valuable clean power they deliver to the grid. The PUC was charged with deciding what the net metering rules will be for customers who go solar after the current program sunsets. The three big California utilities made no secret that they want to end net metering. Just like in so many other states, utilities are trying to stall rooftop solar growth because they see it as a threat to their old way of doing business.
But the interests of a few monopoly utilities shouldn't outshine the rest of us! A recent poll shows a full 80% of Californians oppose utility efforts to end net metering and assess new fees on solar customers. People from all over the state have urged the CPUC to protect net metering and continue to build on California's great solar success story.
