Your right to go solar and get full credit for the electricity you send back to the grid is threatened. Not just in California and Arizona and Hawaii — but also at virtually every single investor owned utility (the aptly named IOUs) in the country. Net metering is the simplest and (arguably) the fairest way to compensate solar customers for the energy they send back to the grid during the day. But from an IOU’s perspective, net metering carves away at the foundation of their profits by reducing their need for new assets and reducing their revenues. It’s a war between the Guaranteed Profit Utilities and millions of potential solar homeowners.
