The following from the petition. ALL PEOPLE MAY SIGN.
"Petition Background
Do you know someone who wants to go solar—but they can’t because they live in an apartment, they rent, or their house is shady? Ever think it would be cool to own a ‘share’ in a community solar array down the street, on a parking lot or maybe on the roof of a local school? Well, the DC Council has introduced a bill that would make that possible! It is called the Community Renewables Act of 2012.
The legislation, if its passed would allow anyone who pays an electric bill in DC – to virtually net meter solar output—anywhere in DC-- to their bill. Right now--people who own homes or buildings can install solar--this new law would let anyone in DC go solar! It is only fair!"

Subject: Community Solar Petition

Hi,

Do you know someone who wants to go solar—but they can’t because they live in an apartment, they rent, or their house is shady? Ever think it would be cool to own a ‘share’ in a community solar array down the street, on a parking lot or maybe on the roof of a local school? Well, the DC Council has introduced a bill that would make that possible! It is called the Community Renewables Act of 2012.

The legislation, if its passed would allow anyone who pays an electric bill in DC – to virtually net meter solar output—anywhere in DC-- to their bill. Right now--people who own homes or buildings can install solar--this new law would let anyone in DC go solar! It is only fair!


That's why I signed a petition to DC Council, which says:

"Please support the Community Renewables Act of 2012-- so that everyone in DC will have a chance to go solar!"
