Energy and Environment


Even if you don't own solar panels, policies that promote alternative energy production help you as a ratepayer and as a steward of the environment. These bills would expand programs that increase distributed electricity generation in Virginia and will chip away at the monopoly currently enjoyed by utilities. 

SB191: Raises the cap on net-metered system sizes for homes and businesses going solar to 125% of the previous year’s consumption.

HB1252: Expands access to third-party purchase agreements for non-profit solar installation in Appalachian Power Service territory.


Call To Action:
  1. Contact members of the House Committee on Commerce and Labor to support this Senate Bill 191!
  2. Contact members of the Senate Committee on Commerce and Labor to support this House Bill 1252!

Committee:
House & Senate Commerce and Labor Committees

Talking Points:
  1. These bills expand solar choice for Virginians. 
  2. Allowing solar in the Commonwealth creates jobs in the growing clean energy industry. 
  3. These policies empower local communities to produce their own electricity and can help keep the cost of the electricity low.
