Save solar for apartment buildings, schools, and farms!

California must strengthen — not weaken — our state’s program to bring rooftop solar and storage to California’s 16 million renters. Working-class and frontline communities have suffered too long from air pollution, climate disasters, skyrocketing utility bills, and blackouts. 

The California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) recently considered proposals from corporate utilities to gut the state’s Virtual Net Energy Metering (V-NEM) program serving multifamily renters, small businesses, and public agencies.

Update: On November 16, 2023, the California Public Utilities Commission voted unanimously to approve the above proposals. Multi-family dwellings are exempted and will be allowed to aggregate meters and transfer bill credits. All existing V-NEM customers are not affected in any way. The new rules took effect on January 1, 2024.
