For every 1,000 signatures, NationofChange will send a letter to the California Governor Jerry Brown, telling him to make renewable energy the future of California.

While the California Feed-in Tariff allows eligible customers the opportunity to sell the electricity they generate through renewable energy systems, such as solar or wind, the state’s government puts a limit to the size of their systems.

According to Clean Technica, in order for customers to participate in the California Solar Initiative (CSI), “the customer is not allowed to install a system that inherently over-produces more than what is needed for his or her home.”

Since California has mandated that 33 percent of its energy come from renewable energy by 2020, it is important that we let homeowners oversize their renewable energy systems and help promote clean energy. 

While California has “carved out a 480 megawatt FiT from renewable facilities smaller than 1.5 megawatts,” because of new legislation, California’s feed-in tariff is in “flux” and renewable portfolio standards (RPS) have created “caps on the deployment of renewable energies.”

By entering into a 10-, 15-, or 20-year contract, customers are paid for the energy produced, but at a very low rate. It’s time we pressure the California Energy Commission, the California Public Utility Commission and Governor Jerry Brown to change the FiT payment levels and create a program that is open ended.

NationofChange is a nonprofit organization, and this website is funded by readers like you. Please support our work. Donate or give monthly.

Let’s stop lawmakers and energy experts from slowing down the process and let homeowners get in on a FiT that has no size limit.

Not only will FiT help California generate clean energy, it’s an overall greener solution for climate change.

Sign the petition and help make renewable energy the future of California.

I no longer believe that Gov. Brown is progressive judging by his record. Bring back the guy from 1992.
