Opponents of Proposition 15 claimed it would “impose massive property tax increases” on solar in California if voters approve it in November.
The solar industry and independent tax experts say that’s wrong.
That’s because a new state law protects commercial solar projects from property tax increases through 2024 should the measure win.
Residential solar is already exempt.
While the solar industry and tax experts believe the state law is legally sound, the California Assessors’ Association disagrees.
