Hour 2 Seg 1 – “Go Green” Segment
RENOVA ENERGY w/ Vincent Battaglia,
– DISCUSSION of the Utility Sun Tax: AB 1139 and Net Energy Metering 3.0.
1. Will basically tax us for using the sun.
2. Go to www.marraintel.com for a great article summarizing this issue.
3. Utilities are trying to STOP solar w/ this bill. Vince feels this is very socialistic and anti-democratic.
4. Here in the Internet Age we need to use solar.
5. This bill speaks specifically to Renova’s “roof top” products and wants to prevent these installations.
6. YOU CAN ACTUALLY LEASE a solar system, solar is not just for the wealthy. Actually helps the lower income customer MORE than the Utilities do.
7. If this bill goes through and you ALREADY have solar, your bills will go back to the high bills you had before you put in solar!!!!
8. Last attempt by the Utilities to retain their monopoly on this industry. The Utility Company will NEVER lower your bills as going solar will.
9. DISCUSSION that there is a law in CA. requiring solar ON ALL NEW CONSTRUCTION in the state. CA. wants 100% renewable energy and what will happen to this law if this bill passes.
10. REPORT on what to do to fight this bill. Links on www.renovaenergy.com for links on how to communicate your opposition. SOLAR IS A POSITIVE. If you tax the sun, WHAT’S NEXT???
– REPORT that you can speak to Vince directly, NO MATTER HOW/WHAT you think of solar.
