You have the right to make energy from the sun without interference from the utilities.

Our Mission

We believe you have the right to make energy from the sun without unreasonable interference by the utilities.

We are a statewide nonprofit association of California solar users. We include homeowners, renters, businesses, nonprofits, schools and others from all parts of California and walks of life. We also welcome solar supporters who don’t have solar yet.

Across California, utilities are working to make it harder and more expensive for Californians to choose solar energy. They are working to end net metering, charge solar taxes and other penalties for having solar panels, and even take control of your panels and the electricity they generate.

We envision a California in which millions of everyday people and communities including homeowners, renters, farmers, and schools can benefit from the freedom of rooftop solar energy. 

We alert you when there is a threat or opportunity to their solar investment, and provide you with simple and clear ways that you can make your voice heard. We provide information about buying, maintaining or improving your solar system. And we assist you with your questions or problems.

We take your privacy seriously and will not sell or share your personal information.

Solar Rights Alliance is a nonprofit, 501(c)4 organization registered with the State of California and the Internal Revenue Service. Our federal tax ID number is 81-120-3907. Our state ID number is CT0237743.
