From the Seventh Principle Team:  An Environmental Justice Issue

LG&E’s rate proposal
LG&E has proposed an increase in the basic charges and a decrease in the reimbursement for energy produced by home solar panels (net metering). Increasing basic charges disproportionally affect low-income communities. Reducing the reimbursement for excess electricity would make solar panels less fiscally desirable and thus imperils the solar movement. Neither increase should be implemented.  The Public Service Commission must approve rate changes and your opposition to these egregious changes can affect their decision. Our UU principles call on us to act for justice and to protect the planet. Please go to the KY PSC website. Be sure to reference case 2020-00350, the case number for LGE’s request for rate increases.
