AB 1990: Solar for all

 
CLCV Supported
Passed Assembly Floor 49-27 (5/30/12)
Failed Senate Floor 14-20 (8/29/12)

Solar projects are being installed in California at an increasing rate, but solar is still out of financial reach for many Californians. AB 1990 (Fong) would have required utilities to invest in solar facilities located in low-income communities that suffer the most from poor air quality. By bringing clean energy to California's most disadvantaged communities, AB 1990 would have helped create new opportunities for jobs and cleaner, healthier neighborhoods.
