Solar Workers Rally for Net Metering

Solar workers are calling on the California Public Utilities Commission to continue supporting the fast-growing solar rooftop market in California, by preserving a program that lets solar customers’ electric meters run backwards when they produce more energy than they use. It’s a program called net metering, and the advocates are pushing back against utility industry proposals to end the program. Christopher Martinez reports from San Francisco.
