$20 Million Dollars for Low Income Solar and Virtual Net Metering.
View the Bill’s Legislative page.
Sponsored by LD-22 Representative Beth Doglio, this bill sought to enable community solar bill crediting and fund low income solar access.
During policy committee, opponents successfully striped the community solar bill crediting portion out of the bill but the low income funding advanced through both the House and the Senate. As it was sent to the Governors desk in March 2020, the Covid-19 pandemic caused economic concerns for the State. Governor Inslee vetoes hundreds of fiscal bills including 2248.
