Building Clean Power & Green Jobs In San Francisco
In a truly groundbreaking victory, on January 12, 2016, after a twelve year battle against resistance from the Mayor's office, clean energy advocates succeed in getting the the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission (SFPUC) to launch the CleanPowerSF program.
CleanPowerSF is planned to create thousands of jobs as the city builds hundreds of megawatts of solar, wind and energy efficiency projects in order to run the entire city on 100% local, clean, renewable electricity by 2030.
Since 2004, Our City has been an unwavering leader of the community coalition that brought CleanPowerSF to its successful launch.
But There Is Still More To Do
While starting the program is a spectacular first step, we must now push the SFPUC to use CleanPowerSF program revenues to build real local clean energy projects, rather than merely buying clean energy on the market. We need to make sure that our electricity comes from truly local sources in order to guarantee jobs and actual greenhouse gas reductions.
Unfortunately the SFPUC has not yet approved a plan to build a comprehensive citywide network of clean energy projects. The planet's climate, and San Franciscans who badly need jobs, simply cannot wait any longer for action.

Sample Letter To Support Building Local Clean Energy
While the launch of CleanPowerSF is a great victory, the SFPUC's delays in constructing a comprehensive local clean energy network, are simply not acceptable in light of the pressing immediate need for jobs and reduced greenhouse gas emissions.
Please move as quickly as possible to use CleanPowerSF program revenues to finance a citywide and Bay Area clean energy and efficiency network, that will run the entire city on 100% locally installed, clean, renewable electricity by 2030.
