California's investor-owned utilities(IOUs) have launched an attack to undermine rooftop solar through their proposals for residential rate structure, and for the new net metering program. IOUs want to impose a fixed charge on solar customers only, limit compensation for energy exported to the grid through net metering, and shift the "true-up" cycle for net metering customers from yearly to monthly. These proposals would effectively make it impossible for customers to come close to "zero-ing out' their monthly bills. California has over 6GW(rooftop and utility-scale) of solar PV installed--we need to protect future growth of rooftop solar.
For more information on net metering and the utilities' proposals: blog post from Alison Seel, attorney for the Sierra Club working on the net metering proceeding.
