Rooftop solar has quickly become a classic California success story - epitomizing the spirit of innovation, progress and leadership that makes the state great. Net metering is one of the most important reasons for California solar success.
The policy has allowed more than 200,000 homes, schools and businesses to go solar and reduce their electricity bills, with highest growth now occurring in mid and low-income communities. Net metering is harnessing private investment to build a healthier, more prosperous, more resilient solar-powered California. A whopping 86% of California voters think net metering should be more widely available.
