San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E) is proposing to add $39 per month to their solar customers’ monthly bill. And, they’re blaming solar users for it.
If approved by the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC), the fee will wipe out many people’s solar savings and discourage others from even considering solar.
SDG&E falsely claims that solar users burden the grid, and need to pay more. The opposite is true; your solar reduces the burden on the grid.
That’s the utility strategy – smear solar repeatedly until decision-makers start believing it.
Fortunately, over two thousand SDG&E solar users have already asked CPUC to reject the proposal.
If you are an SDG&E customer, there’s still time to submit a public comment to the CA Public Utilities Commission.
We expect a preliminary decision by the CPUC in January.
