SB 364:

Maintaining Voter Approved Solar Tax Exclusion


Senator Holly Mitchell

Was passed into law in order to ensure that the existing tax treatment for larger solar projects remained intact in order to help the state meet its clean energy targets in the event that Proposition 15, the Schools and Communities First Initiative, passed in the November 2020 General Election. Due to Proposition 15 failing, this bill will not go into effect.
