Green Home Systems urges Californians to take action against utility company changes to net metering
Green Home Systems is urging Californians to take swift action against utility companies that are proposing drastic changes to net metering and solar charges, making owning a solar panel system perhaps twice as expensive and ⅕ as valuable.
LOS ANGELES, November 15, 2021 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — Green house systems urges Californians to take swift action against utility companies that are proposing drastic changes to net metering and solar charges, making owning a solar panel system perhaps twice as expensive and ⅕ as much precious.
According Save California Solar“Major utilities like PG&E are standing in the way of future progress. They are lobbying the CA Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) to add a monthly solar penalty to ratepayer bills and dramatically reduce the credit solar consumers receive for resale of excess electricity to the grid.
If they succeed, Californians’ access to solar energy will be blocked.
This is a big drain on the benefits of public services at the expense of the public and the planet that is out of step with California clean energy goals.”
What is net metering and why is it important?
Net metering is used when a solar panel system produces more electricity than is needed for a home or building. The system owner can then sell that electricity to utility companies for someone else to use. The solar system owner then receives a bill credit that is usually around the amount they would otherwise pay for the electricity. This is a huge financial benefit for solar panel owners.
Managing Director at Green Home Systems, Robbie Hebertsays: “It would be a travesty to make solar energy less financially advantageous. be detrimental to the advancement of clean energy and to our environment.”
Solar energy is currently the only efficient way to produce clean energy for the masses. The benefits, apart from the financial aspects, include reducing the risk of climate change, maintaining clean and breathable air, eliminating dangerous practices such as the extraction of toxic fossil fuels and countless others.
What can you do?
GHS urges Californians to act immediately and sign the Save California Solar petition. Save California Solar is trying to stop utility companies’ attempt to monopolize the market and make solar power out of reach for many home and business owners.
“Dear Governor Newsom,
(cc: California Public Utilities Commission),
California is a solar state where the energy of the sun belongs to everyone. Our commitment to developing local rooftop solar power is key to achieving our ambitious clean energy goals.
Popular policies such as net metering have helped California reach one million solar rooftops and grow solar power in working-class and middle-class neighborhoods, which account for nearly half of all new solar installations.
Major public services stand in the way of California progress. They are lobbying the CA Public Utilities Commission to add a $65-90 monthly solar penalty charges on their energy bills and significantly reduce the credit solar consumers receive for selling the excess energy they produce.
This is an effort by utilities to capture more profits at the expense of the public. The drain on the profits of public services is in contradiction with California vision of clean energy. This harkens back to a time when solar power was only affordable to affluent households. It would also cost California tens of billions over time and each taxpayer $295 a year.
Californians are counting on you to support rooftop solar and end electricity hoarding. dungeon California a solar state by protecting the effective policies that are the basis of our success.”
Save California Solar currently has nearly 83,000 supporters who have signed the petition with a goal of 100,000.
