Solar Advocacy: Protect Net Metering in Colorado

Keep Colorado rooftop solar growing

What is happening

Rooftop solar benefits everyone. Thankfully, our state’s elected leaders have been rooftop solar champions for decades. And they know that solar owners deserve to earn fair credit for the extra power they generate but don’t use. This is guaranteed through a policy called “net metering.” Through net metering, solar owners earn fair credit on their utility bills for the power they share with their neighbors. Net metering guarantees a fair transaction between solar owners and their utility.

Utilities hate net metering. 

They want to prevent solar owners from producing their own power and being fairly compensated for it. Since 2004, the Colorado legislature has required utilities in the state to credit customers via net metering. That has made it possible for folks across the state to go solar and see savings. 

Your utility would like to see net metering disappear. That would only benefit one entity: your utility. Without net metering, fewer families and businesses would be able to go solar and all Coloradans would miss out on its shared benefits. We need to make sure the Governor’s office doesn’t even consider it.

Governor Polis needs to hear from solar supporters like you. He has signaled his support for solar in the past. We need to remind him that net metering is a fair policy that benefits all Coloradans. Any attempts to roll it back would simply be lining for-profit utility pockets at our expense.

Tell Governor Polis that now is the time to protect and strengthen net metering so that all Coloradans can keep benefiting from the growth of rooftop solar in our state. Send him a message today by filling out this quick form.
