Today, the Snake River Alliance and the Northwest Energy Coalition filed testimony against Idaho Power’s proposal to change our solar net metering program. The Alliance’s technical witness in front of the Idaho Public Utilities Commission is Amanda Levin, Energy and Climate Analyst for the Natural Resources Defense Council, based out of Chicago. We have included it here for you to look over. Many of our allied intervenors also filed testimony today, including Ben Otto of Idaho Conservation League.

The Alliance is defending your right to tap into the sun without unfair penalties or charges from your utility company. The next step is for rebuttal responses from the lawyers representing all parties to the testimony filed today. These will be due by January 26.

Thank you for your contributions to the Alliance to help support this work!
