Talking Points:
NOW IS THE TIME. Net metering has  fostered industry growth, yet the growing demand for solar will soon surpass the cap on net  metering at the precise moment that Washington is striving to decarbonize its vehicles,  buildings, and electric grid.  

● WE ARE TRAILING OTHER STATES IN AN AREA WHERE WE SHOULD LEAD. Compared to industry leading states. Washington slar deployment trails more thana decade behind. Present met metered solar deployment statewide contributes less than 1 percent to the state's fuel grid make up.
THIS BILL IS ABOUT FAIRNESS AND EQUITY. To date, net metering has not included solutions to support multifamily housing, renters, and homeowners with roofs unsuitable for solar. Net metering and  Virtual Net Metering provide a massive opportunity for the State to capitalize on the Federal  government's recent 10-year extension of investment tax credits related to solar energy through  the Inflation Reduction Act. 

●  THIS IS NOT COST-SHIFTING. Far from a net cost, net metering is in  most cases a net benefit—for the utility and for non-solar rate-payers.

Sample phone message: This is a message is for Representative xxx. I am calling to strongly encourage you to support net metering and HB 1427. Please continue to expand the net metering program, ensuring that Washington will be a leader in clean energy and will be able to leverage federal clean energy funds to ensure a healthy future.

A solar panel system harnesses the summertime power of the sun and puts it to work to save you money on your energy bills (among many other benefits) when you need it the most, and this effect increases exponentially when a heat pump HVAC is connected to your home solar system.

Seattle Solar Power - Increases Home Value

Seattle Solar Power - Increases Home Value

Solar in Seattle has many benefits. Your home uses less energy from the utility because you are replacing that energy with solar energy. This saves money on your energy bill and protects our environment by reducing the home’s carbon footprint. All this good stuff has led many Seattle area home owners to invest in solar. But, what many people have not yet caught on to is that solar panels also increase the value of your home.
