Solar Shares II climate

Take action: Stop SMUD from blocking your new neighbors from choosing solar

To the CA Energy Commission:

Please oppose the proposal by SMUD to effectively keep solar panels and batteries from being put into new home construction.  This will gut the state’s solar homes program just when it is getting started, and is the wrong way to fight climate change. 

SMUD’s proposal will:

* Discourage solar from being installed directly on new homes.
* Make it harder for homeowners to add solar and storage later on.
* Deny new residents the chance to save hundreds of dollars on their energy bills each year.
* Deny new residents the ability to keep the lights on during blackouts.

We need to fight climate change with everything we have. This must include making it as easy as possible for our new neighbors to make and store their own solar energy at home and at work.
