SB 43: Community solar power

 
CLCV Supported
Passed Senate floor
Passed Assembly floor
Signed by Gov. Brown

Expands consumer access to renewable energy self-generation programs, providing all customers with the ability to invest in offsite renewable energy projects and receive a utility bill credit in return. The pilot mandated by the bill will create a total of 500 megawatts of distributed solar generation within just over a year of the bill's adoption. Twenty percent of that will have to be available to low-income communities of color that are disproportionately affected by climate change.
