Protect rooftop solar in California

California Public Utilities Commissioners

Big utilities want to block rooftop solar by making it more expensive and taking the benefits of solar away from most Californians.  We need all the clean energy we can get to stop climate change, clean the air and strengthen our local economy. The California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) will take action on the fate of rooftop solar as early as November.  350 Bay Area is joining Environment California, Vote Solar, the Sierra Club and others in the Coalition for Solar Rights to ask the CPUC to make the right decision for California and expand, not limit access to rooftop solar.  Sign the petition below and demand that the CPUC support rooftop solar.

Dear Governor Brown and California Public Utilities Commissioners,

I am a California energy consumer, and I strongly urge you to protect our right to install rooftop solar. Solar is under attack, as is evidenced by extreme utility proposals filed with the PUC. We should be growing solar through smart policies like net metering. Net metering enables families, schools, businesses, and public agencies to save on their utility bills through solar power. Local clean power reduces air pollution, creates jobs, and can lower energy costs for all members of our communities.

I urge you to protect net metering, reject new fees for solar customers, and continue to expand solar access to more Californians.
