Our Mission:

The members of the Electric Ratepayers Alliance, Inc. will ensure all ratepayers enjoy barrier-free access to affordable solar power, while promoting the common business interests of solar power entities and affiliated industries.

Nuestra Misión:

Los miembros de Electric Ratepayers Alliance, Inc. (Alianza de Contribuyentes Eléctricos) aseguraran que todos los contribuyentes disfruten de acceso, sin barreras, a energía solar, mientras promovemos los intereses comunes de entidades de energía solar e industrias afiliadas.

Forging a world where all electric ratepayers enjoy easy access to affordable solar power.

The Electric Ratepayers Alliance is organized as a California Mutual Benefit Corporation and is an incorporated 501 (c)(6).

The ERA will undertake focused initiatives, with the first being to help ensure that ratepayers in the Imperial Irrigation District can take advantage of the benefits of solar power. This initiative, known as the Imperial Solar Union (iSUN), has a goal to reinstate Net Metering in the IID. This will then serve as an example for other municipally-owned utilities.

Once an equitable solar program has been re-established, ERA will also undertake to provide no-cost solar to low income families through donated solar panels and labor.
