Take Action Now To Save Solar In California

(06/2022) Did you know that last week over 2000 people joined last minute rallies in California to demand the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) strengthen Net Energy Metering (NEM)--Local Solar Policy Incentives? These rallies made three simple demands:

  • Don't tax the sun
  • Don't kill California’s Local Solar Power
  • Make it accessible to those who have not had access–we need equity for environmental justice communities

We are down to the wire–we might be two weeks away from a CPUC decision that could kill local solar energy incentives in the state, thereby handing our clean energy future to convicted serial killer PG&E.

Take Action by Flooding Governor Gavin Newsom's phone lines!

1) Call Governor Gavin Newsom 916-445-2841. His office is open 9-5, M-F. His phone lines are glitchy so please be persistent. Here's an example of what you can say, and feel free to personalize it:

"My name is __, I live in ___. The CPUC's latest rooftop solar plan is as bad as their first proposal. California should not tax the sun, period. We need more solar, not less. Gov. Newsom must show leadership, right now."

2) Spread the word - if you have a list, please consider sending an alert, post on social media, etc. Here is a sample message. Borrow from or rip off as much as you want!

Clean Power from the People to the People!
