San Francisco’s wildly popular solar rebates are in danger of being cut. Since 2008, the GoSolarSF initiative has quadrupled the number of solar roofs in San Francisco. The program offers residential rebates of $2000 to $7000 depending on the homeowner’s income.
GoSolarSF is exactly the kind of smart, environmental leadership that makes San Franciscans proud. But the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission (PUC) has proposed cutting the program by 40%. What a shame that would be — with more and more homeowners across California going solar, how tragic it would be for San Francisco to be left behind. Come on PUC, we’re counting on you to show the kind of leadership we’ve come to expect from you.
