The California Public Utilities Commission is now considering proposals made by PG&E and the other big utilities, which would gut the net metering program. The decision is expected to be made by the middle of December 2015. The decision is still being considered so now is the time to act! View our Take Action handout
for quick links to take action now.
The utilities propose to greatly increase monthly fees charged to solar customers and to severely reduce the credit that consumers earn for selling surplus electricity. Together, these changes would destroy the economic incentive for installing solar, and would make it much harder for solar energy systems to pay off. Our thriving job creating industry will be decimated by this change.

Thank you to everyone who stopped by the Mendocino Solar Service booth at Caspar Fest on Saturday, July 25, 2015. We had a great time talking solar, baking solar cookies in the fog, and catching up with friends and neighbors.
Mid-way through the day, festival-goers heard from Mendocino Solar Service's Bruce Erickson, who updated the crowd about Caspar Community Center's new solar energy system. Erickson designed the system at the request of the CCC Board of Directors, and Mendocino Solar Service installed the solar energy system with built-in battery backup in 2014, making Caspar Fest a solar-powered event.
Mendocino Solar Service is proud to sponsor this family-friendly, fun, festive event. We hope to see you next year at Caspar Fest!
There's a lot going on in the field of solar generated electricity, and a lot going on with solar energy on the coast and throughout Northern California. Sign up for our monthly newsletter to hear client success stories and the latest about Mendocino Solar Service.
