Attend a public hearing near you!
Rooftop solar is wildly popular among the Latino community, with 80% of Latino voters in California believing that state leaders should make it a high priority to increase rooftop solar energy. And last year, Presente members helped expose the utility companies' efforts to buy off Latino leaders in Sacramento so they could pass laws that would dicourage households from installing solar panels on their roofs.
But the utility industry and their allies are at it again, this time plotting to flood public participation hearings hosted by the California Public Utilities Commission with anti-solar propaganda. We can nix the utility industry’s power grab again if we join clean energy supporters across the state at the hearings and voice our support for rooftop solar.
Will you attend a public hearing near you to voice your opposition to the proposed fees and changes to the electricity rates designed to discourage the use of solar energy?
