Boone Pickens says we send 700 Billion Dollars every year to other countries to buy oil.
We’ve put together a petition and would appreciate it if you would go take a look at it
Sign our PETITION to tell President Obama and Congress to establish Federal Private Citizen net metering regulations.
Currently the regulations that guide utility companies in allowing customers to interconnect their private alternative energy systems with the grid are established by the individual states, they are erratic across our country with some states being generous in requiring utilities to allow interconnectivity and in other states the requirement does not exist.
The federal government has established generous tax incentives to foster alternative energy growth, but those incentives will not be effective in an area where the utility is not required to allow interconnectivity. A federal regulation requiring utilities to allow a minimum of 5% of households to interconnect to the grid should be established.
The regulation should also require utilities to pay for any excess power produced by these customer alternative energy systems at the current wholesale rate, which would be a further incentive for private citizens to have these systems installed.
Such regulations would encourage additional job growth in both the installation and manufacturing fields across our country.
