Call Today! - CPUC ATTEMPT TO DIVIDE AND CONQUER ADVOCATES ON VIRTUAL NET METERING (VNEM) DECISION NOVEMBER 16TH

COMMENT, CALL, EMAIL TO SAVE SOLAR FOR SCHOOLS, SMALL FARMS, HEALTH CENTERS–Virtual Net Energy Metering (VNEM)

Due to the incredible turn out of clean energy and environmental justice advocates defending solar for renters, the CPUC just released a new proposal that does restore the opportunity for some - but not all - renters to go solar. However, this addition is only limited to residential accounts. Schools, farms, resiliency hubs, community health centers, and even the common areas in multifamily housing - such as those that are needed to provide access to EV charging infrastructure for renters - are still cut out of the ability to reduce their utility burden through solar.  
 
We know that this is a tactic to divide and conquer the people! Why not include onsite netting for schools, small farmers and health centers as well?! Demand onsite netting for all facilities! The CPUC has now postponed the date on virtual net metering for the third time, to Thursday 11/16 starting at 11am
