Rooftop Solar for Sacramento’s Future
Dear SMUD Board of Directors:
We believe SMUD should get back in the business of encouraging, not discouraging, its customers to make and store solar energy at home and at work, for the following reasons:
1) Rooftop solar and storage is good for consumers. It helps people cut their electricity costs and protect themselves from power outages.
2) Rooftop solar and storage saves the entire community money. Fewer people using power from the grid helps SMUD avoid expensive grid infrastructure that it must otherwise build to meet the growing energy needs of our community.
3) Rooftop solar and storage keeps the environment clean. It’s a way people can do their part to help keep our air clean and healthy.
Please make SMUD a clean energy leader, and adopt policies that make it easier and more affordable for all SMUD customers to make and store solar energy at home and at work.
