It is important to update our state’s Net Metering law, originally passed in 1998, to reflect the current state of the market and protect homeowners’ investments in their home.  The new bill would raise the cap from 0.5% to 4% and provide a path for continued investment.  SB is sponsored by Sen Palumbo, and recently passed the Senate, now for consideration by the house.

We sent a letter to Sen. Van de Wege thanking him for his vote.

Subject: Thank you for supporting the Solar Fairness Act (Senate Bill 5223)
Dear Sen Van de Wege,

I appreciate your yes vote on the Solar Fairness Act to pass it out of the Senate last week.

As you know, our clients are counting on the state’s protection for the fair value of their solar electricity.  That protection and guarantee of reliable fair compensation from utilities give us the ability to give the needed peace of mind to our clients while they are considering this investment in clean energy for their home and our community.

Please consider me your resource whenever I can be of any assistance to your office in matters relating to solar energy.

Best regards,

Andy Cochrane
