Interest in reforming the state’s 25-year-old rooftop solar subsidy program – which unnecessarily increases electric bills for non-solar customers – continues to grow. Now, more than 100 diverse organizations representing low-income, seniors, faith-based, community and business have joined the Affordable Clean Energy for All Coalition, including the Sacramento Black Chamber of Commerce.
About 70% of California solar adopters are in the wealthiest 40% of society and only 30% are in the bottom 60%.
In its current form, the state’s rooftop solar program favors the wealthiest Californians and shifts shared costs disproportionately to customers who are least able to pay.
Join our growing coalition and sign up to receive updates here so that together we can help:
- Reflect today’s reduced cost of clean energy
- Ensure everyone who uses the grid pays their fair share
- Stop unfair bill increases on those without solar, may who are low-income and least able to pay
- Ensure California achieves clean energy and greenhouse gas reduction goals in the most cost-effective way
