Tell your elected officials to stand up for your solar rights.
“Dear elected officials,
I have solar panels on my home. I am aware of recent efforts by the utilities to charge a solar tax. Please oppose a solar tax and other efforts by the utilities to penalize people for making solar energy.
I look forward to hearing your views on this matter.”
The sun belongs to everyone, but utilities want to tax it
Your solar panels are competition for the utility monopoly. So in 2021 and 2022, they lobbied state officials for a solar tax of $700/year, and deep cuts to solar credits. Their goal was to make it impossible to save money from solar, and ensure everyone pays the monopoly, now and forever.
Your voices have stopped the Solar Tax, for now
Over the last two years, more than 200,000 Californians wrote, called, testified, marched and marched some more against the utilities’ profit grab, defeating multiple solar tax proposals.
Your voices defeated the Solar Tax and protected the investments of existing solar users, even as state officials caved to the utilities’ other demands.
The utilities will be back for more. Let's be ready to defend our solar rights.
The utilities will not be satisfied until they completely stop the growth of rooftop solar and batteries. The only way they can do that is through their solar tax. So you can bet they will be back with more proposals to tax the sun.
Are you ready to defend your investment?
