AB 1920: Promoting home-grown electricity

 
CLCV Supported
Passed Assembly 46-27 (5/29/08)
Held in Senate Appropriations Committee

When homeowners and businesses install small-scale solar or wind energy systems, net metering allows them to deduct the value of the electricity they generate from their overall electricity bill. But if they have generated excess renewable electricity at the end of the year, they lose that value. AB 1920 (Huffman) would have required electric utilities to pay these home electric generators for the value of their excess electricity at the end of every year.

No Senate action was taken on this item.
