ESA Statement on CA Energy Commission Vote on Rooftop Solar for New Homes

14 May 2018

“California is leading the nation with its ambitious targets for energy efficiency and clean sources of energy,” said Kelly Speakes-Backman, CEO of the Energy Storage Association (ESA).  “As the first state to require solar power on new homes starting in 2020, California proves that solar energy is no longer a niche power source. We applaud the California Energy Commission’s decision, and the energy storage industry looks forward to supporting the implementation of this visionary initiative for support a more resilient, efficient, sustainable, and affordable electricity grid.”
