Rooftop solar benefits all Utahns - and it's time to prove it!

The value of rooftop solar is once again under debate. Specifically, how should we value the clean energy that solar homes and businesses export to the electricity grid? The Utah Public Service Commission will be considering this question in 2020, and a fair outcome is vital for solar in Utah. The outcome of this case will determine long-term energy bill savings for solar-powered households and businesses statewide, and could put our 6,000 local solar jobs, clean air, and continued renewable energy progress at risk. 

Vote Solar, a non-profit organization dedicated to making solar more accessible and more affordable, is conducting a Solar Study to prove that rooftop solar systems benefit all Utahns and our electric grid. That’s where you come in …

Got Solar? We Need Your Help!

If you live in Utah and have solar on your home or business, you can join other solar customers in helping to protect Utah solar rights by agreeing to participate in the Solar Study. Participation is easy, safe and anonymous - all you need to do is authorize Vote Solar to include your system in the study. Vote Solar will just be looking at how and when you use electricity and generate solar energy. Your data will help paint a picture of how solar customers in Utah use energy and provide benefits to the grid. This data is critical to make the case for fair treatment for solar customers. You may have received information about this study in a recent letter distributed by RMP. 

By choosing to take part in this important study, you can help prove that local solar energy systems like yours deliver real benefits to the utility grid. Any solar customer in Utah is eligible to participate, so please share it with your solar neighbors! If you have any questions, you may contact Briana Kobor for more information at , or Kate Bowman, at .
