Right now, thanks to the hard work of many activists, including our friends at 350 Bay Area, the CPUC is poised to enact a decision on net metering that would maintain the policies on rooftop solar that have made California a clean energy leader over the past few years.
But now our major utilities are pulling out all the stops, lobbying the PUC to weaken the final decision. The outcome will have major implications for health and well-being in our own communities and other states that are looking to California as a solar leader. They will vote on the future of net metering at their meeting on Jan 28th. Here’s how you can take action and help protect rooftop solar:
Send a letter to the CPUC asking them to adopt the proposed decision, and keep California moving forward as a clean energy leader.
Attend the CPUC meeting for the final hearing on this issue and support solar rights for all Californians.
January 28, 2016 at 9:30am – 12:30pm, at CPUC Auditorium (505 Van Ness, San Francisco)

You can RSVP and learn more about this action here. We encourage you to take the opportunity to speak during public comment, but showing up at the meeting and being visible has a big impact, too!
For more background on the proposed decision, read this article from the Los Angeles Times, or this piece from KCET.
