As a chair of the Napa Local weather Now! group, I’m writing to precise my anger concerning the continued dedication of the California Public Utilities Fee (CPUC) and Gov. Newsom to chop by 75% the credit score that individuals obtain by sharing their extra photo voltaic power with the grid.
If accepted, this proposal would make photo voltaic power costlier for most individuals as a result of the month-to-month financial savings on their power payments could be too small to take the time worthwhile.
If the identical cuts had been made in different states, photo voltaic adoption would drop by not less than half. This motion straight contradicts California’s dedication to triple all types of photo voltaic power by 2035, a step essential to assembly the state’s local weather change targets.
I urge all Californians to demand that Governor Newsom present management in opposing the CPUC’s excessive proposal that will forestall the common particular person from putting in photo voltaic and inevitably speed up local weather change.
