Rosana recently received her PG&E “True-Up” bill, which each solar customer receives once per year for any charges for energy drawn from the grid. Her total bill for the year after the monthly PG&E minimum usage fee: 5 cents!
Rosana writes for PV Solar Report. She learned of SunWork through RE-volv, SunWork’s funding partner for several nonprofit installations. Since then she has helped publicize SunWork through blog articles and several local neighborhood groups.
Based on her energy usage, and additional solar for a possible electric car or heat pump, SunWork installed a 3.36 kilowatt (kW) system consisting of twelve 280-watt panels. Rosana wanted shade resistance and per-panel monitoring, so SunWork installed Enphase microinverters and monitoring. She recently received her PG&E “True-Up” bill, which each solar customer receives once per year for any charges for energy drawn from the grid. Her total bill for the year after the monthly PG&E minimum usage fee: 5 cents!
Rosana is helping expand the clean energy community. She teaches solar classes.
She was previously a member of the Steering Committee for the Local Clean Energy Alliance, the Bay Area’s largest clean energy coalition, which helped bring Community Choice Energy to Alameda County (for much more information, see Community Choice Energy a Plus for the Environment & for Solar Customers in this issue).
This June, Rosana joined a working group consisting of PG&E employees, several Community Choice Energy partners, and solar installation companies. The group’s focus includes improved collaboration on communication regarding solar and Community Choice Energy issues, including the complex monthly PG&E bill.
Rosana, thanks for being part of the solar community.
