The California Public Utility Commission (CPUC) will soon vote on a proposal which will kill our rooftop solar industry. We should be incentivizing this critical piece of green infrastructure. The CPUC instead wants to turn rooftop solar into a luxury item. Why? Because they and Governor Newsom, who appoints them, do exactly what PG&E tells them. Big-utility companies want to monopolize power and believe solar should only be produced in solar farms. We’ll need those too, but there are no good reasons (and only one bad one: greed) to snuff out the rooftop solar industry. I will list the CPUC commissioners so we know exactly who is selling out our future to pad PG&E’s short-term profits.
President Alice Busching Reynolds
Commissioner Clifford Rechtschaffen
Commissioner Genevieve Shiroma
Commissioner Darcie L. Houck
Commissioner John Reynolds
Here’s what we can do about it. Call Governor Newsom and hold him accountable. Next, join a Save California Solar Rally on December 1st. The closest one will be in San Francisco. Or, you can phone in to the CPUC meeting on the same day and comment, then again on December 15th when they’ll vote. You can also leave a comment through their website. For more info you can look up the Solar Rights Alliance.
