Call key lawmakers and your own legislators and ask them to support AB 2163! The Imperial Irrigation District (IID), a municipal utility, has abruptly ended its net metering program, leaving customers in limbo and setting a chilling precedent for rooftop solar across California. Currently, municipal utilities like IID are not compelled to offer net metering under the same terms as the investor-owned utilities. AB 2163, an emergency bill, would resolve this problem for IID's customers, and set a strong precedent for net metering programs in municipal utilities around the state.

Here's an action alert you can use to write to your legislators on this key bill. You can find your legislator's Sacramento office contact information here. (AB 2163 is in the Senate now, but will need to return to the Assembly. As an emergency bill, it requires a 2/3 vote for passage.)
