The California State Senate Energy Utilities, & Communications (EU&C) Committee this week voted 9-1 to pass AB 560, a bill that would raise the state's net energy metering cap. The bill would double the net metering program capacity to 5%.

"AB 560 cleared a key hurdle today in the EU&C Committee, and we hope to see the rest of their colleagues join in support of solar net metering as the bill moves to the Appropriations Committee and then full Senate." -- Adam Browning, Executive Director, Vote Solar
