iPower Energy Group asks Governor Newsom to stand up and save solar in California
iPower Energy calls on Governor Newsom and The California Public Utilities Commission to do the right thing for solar jobs and solar customers in California
January 17, 2022
MURRIETA, CALIF. (PRWEB) JANUARY 17, 2022 - iPower Energy Group, an energy service provider of home solar, battery backup storage, and a progressive advocate of clean energy, announced today that the company is calling on Governor Newsom to save California solar. #SaveSolar
According to the Solar Rights Alliance, the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) is proposing to make rooftop solar and battery backup storage more expensive with a $57 per month solar penalty fee. The company is urging Governor Newsom to take action, step in and do the right thing for solar jobs and solar customers in California. #SaveSolar
“The more solar panels, the larger the fee,” says Jule Hall, CEO of iPower Energy. “The proposal introduces the largest solar-only fee in America and would dramatically slow the deployment of clean energy in California and put rooftop solar and battery storage out of reach for many families.” #SaveSolar
California has long been a solar energy leader, showing the rest of the world what forward-thinking progress looks like. The CPUC’s proposal puts over 60,000 jobs at risk and would deal a major blow to the California solar and battery storage market.
Hall continued, “This is a utility profit grab. This proposal only benefits the investor owned utilities. If Governor Newsom wants to maintain his position as a clean energy leader, the governor needs to step in before these changes are finalized on January 27th and go into effect this spring.”
