Would you like to see public buildings, parking lots and apartment buildings in DC covered in solar? Would you like to be able to share a solar array with a neighbor or another tenant in your building? Would you like to gather members of your church together to build solar on the roof of your church--and get credits on all of your electric bills?? Well right now you can't-- at least not very easily. This Commumity Solar legislation will expand access to solar to everyone that lives in DC.
Please show your support! Sign the Petition today--and then pass the petition on to 10 other solar supporters. Imagine who you would like to build your solar garden with and send them the link!
Please support the Community Renewables Act of 2012-- so that everyone in DC will have a chance to go solar!
Do you know someone who wants to go solar—but they can’t because they live in an apartment, they rent, or their house is shady? Ever think it would be cool to own a ‘share’ in a community solar array down the street, on a parking lot or maybe on the roof of a local school? Well, the DC Council has introduced a bill that would make that possible! It is called the Community Renewables Act of 2012.
The legislation, if its passed would allow anyone who pays an electric bill in DC – to virtually net meter solar output—anywhere in DC-- to their bill. Right now--people who own homes or buildings can install solar--this new law would let anyone in DC go solar! It is only fair!
