SAN DIEGO - June 1, 2021 - PRLog -- HES Solar announced today its opposition to Assembly Bill (AB) 1139, which aims to take energy production out of the hands of Californians and give it over to the utilities. The bill, authored by San Diego assembly member Lorena Gonzalez, conflicts with California's renewable energy mandate and fair treatment of small businesses. The state had previously endorsed, encouraged, and invested in solar power and now threatens to turn its back on thousands of jobs and over a million solar powered homes.

"AB 1139 was crafted under the veil of a coalition that is really the utilities and their constituents," said HES Solar CEO Ross Williams. "It's a classic case of the utility trying to work through a politician to get something in place under the radar, without the public knowing, that dramatically affects the public. It's truly sad because it's big business going after small business, and it's trying to put us all under."

The San Diego-based solar installer is calling upon all Californians to voice their opposition to this attack on solar through direct calls and emails to their specific representative. The company is using its website, customer list, and social media channels to help share links that all Californians can use to help thwart this assault on privately-owned solar systems.

HES Solar is encouraging California residents to locate and call their representative through the Save California Solar website:  https://www.savecaliforniasolar.org/call-no-ab1139, and to also email their representative whom they can find through the SunPower website: https://p2a.co/qafC2Bf. These websites allow a quick way for residents to find their assemblyperson and then link them directly for a call or email.

HES Solar has clarified more about the legal battle with a recent blog post on their new website, https://hessolar.com/2021/05/is-the-california-government-helping-the-utilities-shut-down-solar/. AB 1139 is a suspicious bill that uses an assault on small businesses throughout the state to shift renewable energy production away from the citizens and into the control of the power utilities.

"Why would we start going backwards now when the state is committing to 100 percent renewable energy use by 2045?" stated Ross Williams. "It's going to cost the rate payers an incredible amount of money, and they'll be paying for it for years and years and years. And the power won't be in the hands of the rate payer, it'll be in the hands of the utility. That's what this is all about. So it's really frightening to see that."
