Current Policy Priorities

Our Policy Priorities are decided are at our Annual Planning Meeting in October. Members are encouraged to have a seat at the table in deciding the future of solar energy in the state. 


2014 Policy Issue Areas

Net Energy Metering

AB 327 presents the greatest opportunity and threat to the solar industry. How the CPUC implements AB 327 will determine the fate of Net Energy Metering for future as well as past solar customers. 

CSI Thermal

CSI is critical to the success of the solar water heating market. How the commercial as well as single-family rebates are structured and/or adjusted to better drive a healthy level of consumer demand are just two of the issues CALSEIA will work on in the coming year.  

Reducing Soft Costs

Reducing soft costs through eliminating or streamlining permitting and interconnection is a top priority for both the solar PV and solar thermal markets.  CALSEIA will be a leading voice in securing concrete and meaningful cost reductions on this front.
