Last month, the state Assembly Committee on Utilities and Commerce passed AB 1990. Now AB 1990 is stuck on the “suspense file” in the Assembly Appropriations (fiscal) committee where Assemblymember Felipe Fuentes is the Chair. Assembly Speaker John Perez is head of the Assembly and a critical vote to getting AB 1990 passed out of Assembly Appropriations. Send them an email today urging them to take AB 1990 off suspense and vote for Solar for All!
Why is Solar For All important?
Low-income communities and communities of color are bearing the burden of California’s dirty energy industry. They face pollution from power plants and refineries located next to their homes, while unemployment and poverty rates continue to soar. Our communities are “solar hot spots” with plenty of solar potential, but without the solar panels. They deserve to benefit from the clean energy economy with clean energy infrastructure and jobs!
The California Environmental Justice Alliance is sponsoring AB 1990 (Fong) — “Solar for All” – that will build renewable energy right in our neighborhoods, create thousands of green jobs, and put us on the path to cleaner air. Solar for All is endorsed by over 80 social justice, environmental, business, and solar groups. Read the Solar for All factsheet.
