100% Green Power — An Option for Consumers under San Francisco Plan
September 24th, 2012 by James Ayre
California is at the forefront of combating climate change, by using innovative new policy solutions; creating a cap-and-trade system; mandating more zero-emission vehicles; and now offering consumers the option of sourcing electricity entirely from renewable sources.
“If approved, city officials say, the program would slash carbon emissions during the first year by nearly 10 times the amount already achieved by the city’s green energy initiatives. According to the proposal, which is subject to a vote by the city’s Board of Supervisors, the program would increase utility bills for average customers by about $9 per month.”
