Rooftop Solar in Virginia is a MUST

Support Rooftop Solar In Virginia’s Energy Plan

I have been in the Virginia solar industry for over 11 years . As a solar worker, advocate and enthusiast, I’m able  to earn a good living wage and support myself and family.  My work builds clean, local energy into our communities and helps customers save on their energy bills. We teach our children about clean energy and clean earth right from our homes.

My job and the growth of our industry depend on fair market access and a level-playing field for customer-owned ‘rooftop’ solar.  Virginia's Energy plan should expand job-creating incentives like net metering while eliminating arbitrary barriers that stifle job creation and hurt Virginia solar contractors.

Incentives like net metering are crucial to the growth of my company.  On the other hand, arbitrary limits to net metering, standby charges and system size limitations reduce the size and scope of the work that my company is able to do. 

I respectfully urge you to expand rooftop solar in Virginia to create well-paying jobs, build clean, local energy into our communities and give consumers energy choice and freedom.

Thank you,


Sumit Bhatnagar, CEO
