Renova Energy solar panels cover a roof in the Coachella Valley.

As California begins reopening, small business owners know all too well the day-to-day worry over work levels that might not return to pre-pandemic norms. While government programs and assistance have helped many small business owners weather the COVID storm, for solar installation companies like mine, upcoming government agency decisions could threaten our business’ health.

Later this year, the California Public Utilities Commission will decide the future of Net Energy Metering, the mechanism that determines how solar rooftop energy rates are calculated.

The state’s big three utilities are pushing to gut the state’s NEM program, raising rates for rooftop solar, making solar less affordable for low- and middle-income families and threatening local jobs.
