When FirstEnergy initially tried to shut down net metering and squash solar energy growth in West Virginia, we knew we had to act. We entered this debate focused on protecting families from utility overreach and committed to the idea that people should be paid a fair value for their solar electricity. We set out to protect the 400 Appalachian families that make their living from solar. We asked for fair rates–rates backed by real math– not just for families, but for factories and farms, grocery stores and schools, libraries, and every other West Virginian organization.
In the past 6 months, we've changed the future of solar in West Virginia. Thousands of us banded together to demand fairness and a level playing field. Thanks to the strength of your voices, FirstEnergy agreed to protect existing solar customers and allow more West Virginians to choose solar in the future. We’ve protected West Virginian families by giving them another window of time to go solar with true net metering. We've ensured that future net metering rates are supported by facts and math. We’ve set the stage for years of incredible growth of solar on farms and food banks and small businesses. Growth that will not just create jobs, but build wealth. And this time that wealth will remain here in our mountains.
Now is the best possible time to go solar to maximum your value. Give us a call today to see if solar can work for you, and get in line so that we can get your family in under the existing program.
