San Francisco Demands Community Choice for Clean Energy
May 15th Rally at SF City Hall
A clean power rally was held on Monday, May 15th at 12:00pm outside of San Francisco City Hall. The city and county is on the verge of building the largest municipal clean energy network in the world. Every home in the city would be powered by safe, renewable energy. Greenpeace and the Community Energy Alliance gathered to show Mayor Newsom that they support clean power.

In 2001 San Franciscans voted to support a ballot initiative that allows the city to build the largest municipal solar system in the world. Five years later, the city has yet to install a single solar panel as part of the program. This plan, if it is approved, will pool the buying power of San Francisco’s electricity customers to build the largest municipal clean energy network in the world. Proponents believe that clean energy would help to clear the air, create jobs, stabilize energy prices, curb global warming, and break PG&E’s grip on ratepayers. Read more
