With more than a million solar roofs across the state, California shouldn’t walk back incentives promised to homeowners who have installed or want to install solar roofs.
On June 2, a bill that would stall the growth of rooftop solar in California died in the state Assembly. After the bill’s filing, Environment California led environmental opposition to the bill, mobilizing thousands of constituents to oppose the plan that would have reduced solar incentives and awarded utility companies outsized power to raise consumers’ electricity rates.
“California is a beautiful, sunny state with some of the best solar potential in the world,” said Environment California State Director Laura Deehan. “With so much at stake, it made no sense to slow down rooftop solar.”
While Environment California applauds the end of AB 1139, our work to save rooftop solar continues as the California Public Utilities Commission debates the future of solar incentives.
