Expand solar access – Urge House and Senate Energy Committee members to support solar PPAs
Our lawmakers have a no-cost way to empower more West Virginians to benefit from solar. Current law forbids us from entering into solar Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) to buy solar energy. Legalizing these agreements will help West Virginia communities, businesses, and nonprofits:
- Install solar with little to no upfront cost
- Lower electric bills from day one
- Lock in affordable long-term electricity rates
- Avoid utility rate increases
- Stabilize monthly budget expenditures
In addition, solar PPAs will expand economic development, create good local jobs, and attract employers to locate and invest in West Virginia. Urge your legislators to support legalizing PPAs.
It is critical that members of the Senate Energy, Industry, and Mining Committee and the House Energy Committee hear from us!
