Hundreds rally in California to voice frustration over proposed rooftop solar charges

January 13, 2022Hundreds of people took to the streets in Los Angeles and San Francisco today to call on California Gov. Gavin Newsom to keep roof solar growing in the state. Ralliers are calling on Gov. Newsom to direct the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) to revisit an initial choice made in December that considerably cuts the states solar energy incentive program. California regulators have computed that to get to 100% clean energy as needed by state law, California requires at least 28 GW of customer-sited solar by 2045.

January 13, 2022Hundreds of people required to the streets in Los Angeles and San Francisco today to get in touch with California Gov. Gavin Newsom to keep rooftop solar growing in the state. Ralliers are getting in touch with Gov. Newsom to direct the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) to revisit a preliminary decision made in December that significantly cuts the states solar energy reward program. Environment America Research & Policy Centers President Wendy Wendlandt spoke at the event in Los Angeles and the groups State Director Laura Deehan spoke at the San Francisco rally. “Were in the middle of a climate emergency situation,” Wendlandt stated. “The last thing we need to do is make rooftop solar more pricey.” Under CPUCs preliminary proposal, California solar clients would be charged a new regular monthly fixed rate of $57 on average. That total would be the highest solar charge in the nation. In other states where this sort of tax was enforced, the rate of brand-new solar setups plummeted. For example, when Nevada set up a comparable penalty, the solar adoption rate visited 47%. When a much better policy was reinstated, the rate came back up. California regulators have actually determined that to get to 100% clean energy as needed by state law, California requires a minimum of 28 GW of customer-sited solar by 2045. Thats almost three-times as much roof solar as the state has set up since 2022 “Rooftop solar panels are Californias quickest path to cleaner air, healthier communities and less climate contamination,” Deehan stated. “We require as numerous as we can get. More than ever, we need Gov. Newsom to stand up and ensure that California continues our shining leadership as a roof solar state.” The commission can hold a last vote on the future of net metering as quickly as Jan. 27, following a 30-day public comment period on the proposed decision. If this proposition is adopted, modifications would go into impact this spring. Support for the rallies was shared across social networks.
