Sign the Petition Today!

Solar Sonoma County urges you to take action today to save rooftop solar.

1. Utilities are proposing to kill solar. Their proposals would cut in half the amount they credit solar customers for putting electricity on the grid, plus add new fees for solar customers only. Homeowners want to purchase rooftop solar systems, but these dis-incentives would prevent many from doing so.
2. The solar industry is continuing to expand opportunities for more people to generate their own power. The industry wants to continue reducing prices so more people can go solar, and it won’t be able to do that without net metering.
3. Why fight progress? Net metering works. The state has big clean energy and climate goals. Why slow down the one thing average consumers can do to build a clean energy future?

Our industry partner, the statewide solar industry association, CalSEIA, has generated 7,800 signatures to date from their www.SaveRooftopSolarCA.com site. Their goal is 10,000 by November 3rd. Coalition partners and field organizers are out collecting another 90,000 signatures with an updated new goal of 100,000 signatures delivered Nov 5th!! With your help, we'll meet this goal and set a new record of public comment submitted to the CPUC.
