Title: Support and Expand 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, as well as other related businesses.


Please expand AND enhance "rooftop" solar programs and energy efficiency programs for everyday Virginians.  We will all benefit from a cleaner and healthier electric infrastructure system.


I respectfully urge you to expand rooftop solar in Virginia to create well-paying jobs, build clean local energy in our communities and give consumers energy independence, choice and freedom.  We need more jobs and these are the kind of jobs Virginia should support!  And the more rooftop solar panels in place, the greater availability of electricity during peak times of demand because of hot sunny days, moderating the amount of production required centrally by our electric utilities, and reducing the chances of brown outs and other problems along the grid.


Thank you,
