Vote Solar email campaign on Net Energy Metering in California

If you’re a Californian, please take a moment to help Vote Solar let the California Public Utilities Commission that you support an expanded definition of the Net Energy Metering (NEM) cap. Net Energy Metering allows customers to help pay for the cost of their rooftop photovoltaic system by selling electricity back to their utility “netting” their utility bill to zero. Under the current rules the maximum allowed amount of NEM is likely to be reached in the next year, putting a serious damper on a great tool for encouraging solar distributed generation. The Commission is expected to vote on the matter Thursday May 10th 24th, so please visit the Vote Solar site by no later than the 9th 22nd to give the CPUC time to count up all the support. The text of the Vote Solar letter is included below for your convenience, but the automated filing form is on this Vote Solar site. Dear Commissioners: I write today to urge you to adopt the proposed decision issued in Rulemaking No. 10-05-004. I strongly support the methodology outlined in the proposed decision for calculating the 5 percent statewide net energy metering cap and believe the clean energy and new jobs created by this policy will benefit California’s environment and economy. Approving this proposed decision on net metering will help California reduce its reliance on polluting fossil fuels that are imported from out of state, increase job creation, improve grid reliability, and reduce the need for expensive and polluting peaker power plants. More capacity under the net energy metering cap is good for California electricity customers, the economy, public health, and the environment. Please vote yes and continue the PUC’s leadership in advancing California toward a clean energy future. Thank you.

    I live in Colorado and am a participating proponent of Solar energy. ( I have a 7.5 KW system)
    Although we are closer to the sun than most people, this is by far the most appropriate, sensible, and responsible move I have made to increase my homeownership, value for the money and cabable of producing my own electricty with out reliance on a corporation which is involved only in profit for themselves.
