Community Solar Petition

To be delivered to DC Council

Petition Statement

Please support the Community Renewables Act of 2012-- so that everyone in DC will have a chance to go solar!
There are currently 771 signatures. NEW goal - We need 1,000 signatures!

Petition Background

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!
