Consumers are choosing solar energy across the country. But outdated monopoly utility companies are launching coordinated campaigns to block consumer solar, and to block our energy choices.
Join us as we mobilize families, individuals and communities from coast to coast to protect and expand our energy freedom.
There is a long history of monopoly utilities, fossil fuel companies and aligned interests working to block rooftop solar and batteries. These efforts to stop consumer energy choice can be traced back to 2012!
Monopoly utilities fund Edison Electric Institute (EEI), who issued their report “Disruptive Challenges” that claimed rooftop solar is a “threat” to the traditional utility business model and guaranteed profits. For almost a century, monopoly utilities have made money by building large infrastructure projects and then sending ratepayers the bill.
As the Washington Post explains how utilities and fossil fuel companies are fighting to protect their profits,by launching a “determined campaign” to stop consumer solar choice.
When families and businesses choose rooftop solar, hundreds of thousands of family-supporting careers are created. As of 2023, more than 250,000 people were employed in the solar industry. Across the United States, nearly 10% of homeowners had installed solar as of 2023, and this number is continuing to grow.
Is a coalition committed to protecting Americans’ right to install and generate our own solar energy. Consumer solar is vital to reduce high electricity bills while increasing the resilience of our communities.
We advocate for strong consumer solar policies like Net Energy Metering (NEM), which ensures people are fairly compensated for the solar energy they provide to the electricity grid to serve their neighbors. We fight against utilities who try to slap discriminatory fees on solar customers.
When outdated monopoly utility companies impose onerous fees or wage anti-solar lobbying campaigns against consumer solar, we mobilize our communities to fight back.
