#ReadyFor100 Percent Clean Energy!
Our goal is to accelerate a transition to 100% clean, renewable energy for all!
These Two Cities Just Committed to 100% Renewable Energy!
Now more than ever, it’s time to help grow the local, democratic, and equitable 100% clean and renewable energy resistance!On Monday, Pueblo’s city council voted unanimously to commit to achieving a 100% clean, renewable energy future by 2035. And on Tuesday, the Moab City Council approved a resolution committing the city to transition to 100% clean, renewable energy by 2032.
Pueblo is the 3rd city in Colorado and 22nd city in the United States, and Moab is the 3rd city in Utah and 23rd city in the United States to formally commit to 100% clean, renewable energy!
We also need individuals to take responsibility for the environment, and by switching to clean energy, to resist the Federal Government’s Assault on the EPA and the environment.
Protesters took to the state house calling out South Carolina Electric and Gas’ (SCE&G) constant rate hikes for the construction of the two new nuclear reactors in Fairfield County.The protest follows news of financial issues with the project’s contractor Westinghouse and its parent company Toshiba losing $6.3 billion dollars.
Innovating through partnerships for a clean energy future
It’s a story we all know well: the lone inventor toiling and tinkering away in isolation until one day, like lightning, genius strikes and a great breakthrough is born.
Reality, though, is rarely so romantic. The truth about innovation is that it most often results from the give and take between multiple partners and collaborators, inspired by a common vision, sharing insights and building on each other’s hard work, as well as refining their approach through the crucible of trial and error.
At PG&E, we believe that rule will hold just as true for finding the keys to a cleaner energy future as it has in driving the digital revolution.
We also understand that our company’s role in helping to bring about that future offers a potential blueprint for others, both in the U.S. and abroad. The answers we come up with will be vitally important in showing not just that a clean energy economy is possible, but how it can be built, and how quickly.

Tesla Gives the California Power Grid a Battery Boost
An installation of Tesla batteries is connected to distribution circuits at Southern California Edison’s Mira Loma substation in Ontario, Calif., about 40 miles east of Los Angeles.
By DIANE CARDWELL JANUARY 30, 2017
Just off a freeway in Southern California, 396 refrigerator-size stacks of Tesla batteries, encased in white metal, have been hastily erected with a new mission: to suck up electricity from the grid …
I agree with this Republican platform, but if we remove “subsidies” for solar energy, then let’s remove ALL energy subsidies. Solar will compete very well with coal generated electric power in a country with no energy subsidies at all!
We are 2279 Americans educating the country about free-enterprise solutions to climate change.Members of republicEn are conservatives, libertarians, and pragmatists of diverse political opinion.
We stand together because we believe in American free enterprise. We believe that with a true level playing field, free enterprise can deliver the innovation to solve climate change.
But America’s climate policy needs to change. Change requires that conservative leaders step-up and lead.Climate change is real and we believe it’s our duty and our opportunity to reduce the risks.
But to make a difference, we have to fight climate change with free enterprise instead of ineffective subsidies and regulations.
Expensive and Dirty Power!
By using BG&E standard offer service, the mix of energy you receive contains only 4.36% renewable energy, and of that, only 0.07% is from solar.
You could increase that to 50% renewable energy by paying a 3rd party supplier a premium, sometimes over 10% higher than the coal-generated standard, in order to protect the environment, but most people don’t want to spend more for their energy.
That’s where SolarCity comes in.
With no out-of-pocket cost, you could have solar panels on your roof generating electric power at a lower rate than what you are paying your utility now.
You can choose to own the panels with zero down bank financing, or have SolarCity own and maintain the panels with a solar lease or Solar PPA (power purchase agreement). Either way, you’re protected.

Note: If you choose to move forward and install your solar power system, a Maryland Public School’s Booster Club will benefit from a donation from the installer. We would be glad to setup a similar program for your school, PTA, Church or similar non-profit organization. Please contact Dennis Meizys to learn more: email@example.com
