What if we controlled our own energy?
Much has been made about the closure of Diablo and the difficulty of replacing that semi-clean energy with totally clean renewables. What if we could make that happen for realz? Well, SLO county (along with Ventura and Santa Barbara counties) is looking into adopting a Community Choice Energy program to give our 1.5 million residents the option of following in the footsteps of Marin, Sonoma, Alameda, SF, the East Bay… and many others.
This would create local green jobs, lower our electricity rates, reduce our carbon footprint, encourage energy innovation, and empower homeowners and landowners to become their own power plants. Seriously, it’s the best thing since sliced bread and it could be oursss, all OURSSS. You just have to want it. Get involved with our local non-profit advocacy group, SLO Clean Energy, before you pay that next PG&E bill!
