All interested community members from Woodland, Davis, and unincorporated Yolo County are invited to learn more about Valley Clean Energy’s (VCE) proposed solar Net Energy Metering (NEM) policy at two upcoming workshops in Davis and Woodland. “Net Energy Metering” refers to a billing system that credits those with solar panels on their home or business for the electricity they generate. Attendees will have an opportunity to provide input at the workshops to help create a solar NEM policy that is responsive to the needs of the region.
- Monday July 23, 2018, 6:30 – 8:30 p.m., Davis Community Chambers, 23 Russell Boulevard, Davis, CA 95616
- Wednesday, August 1, 2018, 6:30 – 8:30 p.m., Woodland City Hall Council Chambers, 300 First Street, Woodland, CA 95695
VCE launched in June 2018 as the default energy provider for the City of Woodland, City of Davis, and unincorporated Yolo County. VCE is governed by a six-person board with two board members from the governing boards of each jurisdiction. At its July 12, 2018 meeting, the VCE Board of Directors delayed the start of its solar NEM program. The purpose of these community workshops is to reevaluate the program, gather input from the community, and make the policies more beneficial to solar NEM customers. VCE’s solar NEM program is expected to begin January 1, 2019.
After the Workshops:
Following the workshops, VCE’s Community Advisory Committee (CAC) will review the solar NEM policy options and provide recommendations to the VCE Board of Directors for review at its August 8, 2018 meeting. The Board will then consider adoption of a revised policy at its September 12, 2018 meeting. CAC and Board meetings are open to the public. Meeting agendas and minutes are posted at www.valleycleanenergy.org/about-us/meetings.
