Tell the Pedernales Electric Co-op Board to Roll Back Anti-Solar Rates and Fees
In December, the Pedernales Electric Cooperative (PEC) board of directors voted to adopt new rates and fees for members who chose to use solar at their homes. The result will be massive rate increases for those who already have solar and discouraging other co-op members from getting solar going forward. Not only will bills increase, they will be much more confusing for members to understand, with two new demand charges and time-of-use rates.
PEC staff put these proposals forward because they claim that members with solar aren't paying their fair share, but they haven't shown any data to actually prove that.
The PEC board of directors is going to take another vote on this issue in July, so now is the time to speak up.
Email the PEC board to ask that they treat all customers - including those with solar - fairly.
