Power Struggle In California Shows Clean Energy War Looming On Horizon


January 18, 2022 ( Newswire) The war between the billion-dollar California investor-owned utilities and millions of Cali homeowners is about to get hot.

The battle lines are drawn. On the Utility side, PG&E, San Diego Gas & Electric and Southern California Edison got the California Public Utilities Commission to recently propose sweeping rollbacks to the value of net metering and add a solar surcharge on millions of current and future California (ratepayer) homeowners who own their solar and own the right to create their own energy from the sun.

On the other side is the California Solar Industry and all those California homeowners.

If adopted, the bleeding will start at the local level, when small and mid-size California solar companies start to lose business because nobody will want to go solar when those policies are implemented and they go out of business permanently. That's bad.

California Governor Gavin Newsom stated "more work needs to be done" on the CPUC solar-killing proposal. A solar association petition to him signed by more than 100,000 Californians was sent. Thousands of small businesses, jobs and billions of dollars are at stake.

But the proposal's benchmarks are marked like a bloody scar on the neck of those small businesses. The line has been drawn. But resdiential solar energy is good for the state of California.

Green Home Systems, a Los Angeles-based solar company greeted the news of the CPUC proposal with clarity. It knows firsthand the growth of the California solar industry and realized the great potential residential solar represents in many key areas of the US economy, .

"Green Home Systems built a good national and California solar business selling and installing PV systems, helped the state meet its clean energy goals, created jobs in small towns across the state, generated federal and state tax dollars, spurred great employment growth and watched thousands of people save a ton of money otherwise spent for power," said Green Home Systems Business Development Manager Steve Best. "It is doubly troubling that the very institution (the CPUC) created to protect the California energy consumer would try to slash and burn the solar industry to the ground."

Please sign the petition to Gov. Gavin Newsom at Sign Petition - Save California Solar.
