Speak Up for Nevada Solar

Nevada has been a solar-coaster (and not the fun kind) over the last eight months. At Vote Solar we are still hard at work on multiple fronts to reverse the PUCN’s decision to hike rates on existing and future solar customers late last year. We’re part of a mighty new coalition: We are excited to ...

We can’t let the utilities rewrite the rules on solar customers to protect their outdated business model. 

Sign our petition (text below) to tell the California Public Utilities Commission that they shouldn't change the rules on Californians with rooftop solar! 


* denotes required field

PETITION TEXT:

Dear California Public Utilities Commissioners,

I am signing this petition because I believe in protecting Californians’ right to go solar and receive full credit for the clean energy they deliver to the grid.

California has more than 200,000 solar roofs, and we expect to boost that number to half a million by the end of 2017.  The policy of net metering has been crucial to recent growth and the creation of local jobs around the state. Rooftop solar systems reliably produce electricity for 30 years or more, and Californians invest in rooftop solar because they expect long-term bill savings over the life of the system.

Under Assembly Bill 327, the Commission must decide how long solar customers may continue under current net metering rules. Changing the rules unexpectedly for customers who have already made solar investments and signed contracts would be unfair and would drastically slow our state’s solar momentum.

I urge you to stay the course and allow customers who install solar under the current program to continue under current net metering rules for at least 30 years.

Signed,

XX
