A front group for big utilities has launched an outrageous attack on your solar rights.

It could cost you thousands of dollars if you have solar or make it impossible for you to go solar in the future.

They want federal regulators to block you from earning fair credit for the surplus electricity your solar panels produce.

They want to overturn nearly 40 years of state energy policy and put it in the hands of the federal government.

And they want to do it while everyone’s attention is focused on the public health crisis. They’ve even paid $30,000 to speed up the process before people know what’s happening.

You have less than 30 days to prevent this!

Leaders across the country are fighting back! They’re demanding federal regulators protect your solar rights.
