This month we focus again on the utilities’ attempts to control every aspect of our energy future. Case in point: AB 1139, the “Utility Profit Grab” bill, an IOU- backed bill to upend the economics of rooftop solar.
Under the guise of the specious ‘cost-shift’ debunked at last month’s statewide call, this bill would devastate solar economics for all customers, past, present and future. It would particularly destroy the ability of low-income communities to benefit from rooftop solar, just as this empowering technology has begun to reach low- and middle-income communities more broadly.
We’ll discuss what AB 1139 means for Community Choice customers and their communities. Tara Hammond, Vice Chair of the Community Advisory Committee for San Diego Community Power will kick off a discussion of what Community Choice agencies have done thus far regarding AB 1139. The objective: To move their governing boards to strongly oppose this damaging bill.
Alliance Statewide calls and recordings of the lively discussions that result are for members only. To participate, please Join.
