Dear Solar Advocate,

You're receiving this email because you have either expressed an interest in solar as an advocate or may in fact already have it on your home!  

Great news - City Council unanimously agreed to boost the solar rebate and incentive budget from a proposed $4 million to $7.5 million in FY 2013.

Councilmembers were assured that the increase would not unduly impact rates, the Council's affordability goals or lead to inefficiencies in the solar programs themselves. Indeed, the increase should mean more solar panels get installed on home and commercial rooftops, more local jobs are created, and more clean power is produced right where it is needed. With the new budget, local advocates estimate that some 10 MWs of additional solar could be installed in Austin next year. This means Austin is well on its way to reaching at least 200 MWs of solar by 2020.
 
Since reinforcing quality decisions can be as effective as calling out bad ones, will you thank city council members for this huge step? You can drop a quick note to them individually:

Thank you for all you do!

P.S. The city's "send to all council members" link is temporarily broken, necessitating the direct emails this week.

We hope that you will take REAL ACTION on this virtual event!
