Governor Baker: Don’t Let the Sun Set on Massachusetts Solar!
We have just one month to get Massachusetts solar back on track before lawmakers break for the summer ... or risk slamming the brakes on the state’s clean energy success story. Tell Governor Charlie Baker that the time for solar action is now!
Massachusetts is one of our nation’s solar leaders with enough installed to power more than 120,000 homes and support the second largest solar workforce in the U.S. Now that’s at risk, due to an unnecessary cap on net metering, the successful policy that makes sure customers get full credit on their utility bills for the valuable clean electricity they deliver to the grid. Many parts of the state have already hit the program cap, bringing planned solar projects in more than 170 communities to a standstill – and the rest of the state is not far behind. We need action from state leaders now so that Massachusetts solar can keep shining.
Governor Baker says he supports solar power, but so far his Administration has opposed immediate action to address this arbitrary barrier to continued solar growth. We need to change his mind, and we need to do it fast.
