Shared solar programs give access to cost-saving solar to Virginians who either do not own their homes or whose roofs aren’t built to support solar panels. Third party developers will build small solar arrays that people can “subscribe” to, and receive a credit for the electricity produced that should reduce their overall energy bill. 

But the Virginia shared solar program has a problem: it has an at least $55 minimum bill – effectively a solar tax – in Dominion territory, and there is no program at all for Appalachian Power customers. This means most Dominion customers cannot afford to participate, and ApCo customers don’t even get the choice.

That’s why we’re supporting two bills to reform the Dominion program to make sure it does what it’s intended to do – save you money through low-cost solar – and create a program for our friends in Southwest and surrounding areas. 

So email your lawmakers now. Tell them to support SB253/HB106 and SB255/HB108.
