PG&E Expands Net Metering, California Solar Producers Jump For Joy

In the Environmental Leader, October 30 2009

Solar advocates in California say that a recent move by Pacific Gas & Electric to expand net metering will encourage adoption of more rooftop solar.

Earlier this week Governor Schwarzenegger convinced PG&E to up the amount of net metering allowed in its territory from 2.5 percent of peak demand to 3.5 percent, according to a press release.

“Net metering is the policy backbone of a strong rooftop solar market in California. This commitment provides a critical near-term solution for the looming net metering program cap,” said Sara Birmingham, Solar Alliance lead for California.
