    Solar is under attack in California and the California Solar & Storage Association (CALSSA) is fighting back.  Please sign their petition HERE.

    California is a solar state where power from the sun belongs to everyone. Our commitment to growing local rooftop solar is critical to meeting our ambitious clean energy goals.

    Popular policies like net metering helped California reach one million solar rooftops and are growing solar in working and middle-class neighborhoods, which make up nearly half of all new solar installations.

    Big utilities are standing in the way of California’s progress. They are lobbying the CA Public Utilities Commission to add a $65-90 monthly solar penalty fee to their energy bills and drastically reduce the credit solar consumers receive for selling the excess energy they produce.

    This is an effort by utilities to grab more profits at the expense of the public. The utility profit grab is out of line with California’s clean energy vision. It takes us back to a time when solar was only affordable for wealthy households. It would also cost California tens of billions over time and each ratepayer $295 a year.

    Californians are counting on you to support rooftop solar and stop the utility power grab. Keep California a solar state by protecting the successful policies that are driving our success.

    Register HERE for a webinar Friday, Nov. 5 about the new solar+storage system at Atrisco Heritage Academy High School in Albuquerque.

    Fri, Nov 5, 2021 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM MDT

    A new solar+storage system at Atrisco Heritage Academy High School in Albuquerque, New Mexico will provide significant cost savings to the school district. The installation, which includes an 850 kW solar array combined with a 721 kW Tesla Megapack 2 battery storage system, will reduce energy costs by $3.5 million over the system’s 25-year lifetime. In the future, the system may be expanded and set up to provide resiliency benefits as well.

    Atrisco Heritage Academy High School is a bilingual education facility rich in diverse ethnicities and higher education college prep programs. The school serves 2,200 students within the Albuquerque Public School District, of which 14% of students come from disadvantaged households.

    The project, which is part of DOE/Sandia National Laboratories Energy Storage for Social Equity Initiative, is jointly supported by Albuquerque Public Schools, OE Solar, the U.S. Department of Energy Office of Electricity, Sandia National Laboratories, the New Mexico Department of Energy, Minerals and Natural Resources Department, and the Clean Energy States Alliance.

    This webinar will feature presentations and discussion by project partners.

    Panelists:

    • Dr. Imre Gyuk, U.S. Department of Energy Office of Electricity

    • Dan Borneo, Sandia National Laboratories

    • Anthony Sparks, Albuquerque Public Schools

    • Kimberli Roth, Director of Sales and Marketing, OE Solar

    • Todd Olinsky-Paul, Clean Energy States Alliance (moderator)

    This webinar is presented by the Energy Storage Technology Advancement Partnership (ESTAP). ESTAP is a federal-state funding and information sharing project that aims to accelerate the deployment of electrical energy storage technologies in the U.S. ESTAP is funded by the U.S. Department of Energy Office of Electricity, managed by Sandia National Laboratories, and administered by the Clean Energy States Alliance.

    During the 2021 legislative session, Senator Mimi Stewart and Rep. Nathan Small sponsored Senate Bill 12, the New Mexico Clean Fuel Standard, which creates a market for lessening the carbon intensity of transportation fuels. Clean Fuel Standards drive economic development, benefit existing and new industries and help create jobs.    

    This one-hour meeting will review the basics of a clean fuel standard, discuss what industries would benefit from a New Mexico standard and provide an overview of the economic benefits of diversifying New Mexico’s economy with industries that use technologies to produce alternative fuels including renewable natural gas, hydrogen, biofuels and electrification. Industries such as agriculture, oil and gas, transportation and bioproducts all have an opportunity to participate in a Clean Fuel Standard.
