PG&E has recently launched a multi-million dollar greenwashing campaign throughout San Francisco. You may have seen their ads on the side of MUNI buses announcing what "GREEN IS..."

The campaign represents PG&E as "greening the city", but their campaign promises little and PG&E is far from green. They get less than 3% of their energy from solar and wind sources combined AND they have lobbied against incentives for installing solar panels in the recent past.  Meanwhile, the alternative to PG&E, Community Choice Energy, promises to run San Francisco on 50% renewable energy sources – mostly solar and wind - within the next decade.

So... how does this relate to making out?

Well, as part of their "commitment" to greening this city, PG&E has installed solar panels to the rooftop of the LGBT Center on Market; and they are having a press conference and green fair to let the world know about it!

So... a group of conscientious queer and queer-friendly folks want to let that press know that we love the LGBT center, but are not too happy with PG&E's deceptive campaign.... and we are going to do something about it!

Come help us make a scene outside the LGBT center this Saturday! Wear green, have fun, and get noticed (that's the point)!


Need more convincing?


Visit letsgreenwashthiscity.org to see more hard facts against PG&E's green image.
Then visit PG&E's site letsgreenthiscity.com, and be that much more drastically aware of what's missing.
