This is a big deal.
We have a once in a lifetime opportunity to help the City of San Luis Obispo achieve carbon neutrality.
This means reducing greenhouse gas emissions that cause climate change by increasing the use of renewable energy from clean sources like the sun and wind. Then we must phase out the use of fossil fuels like gasoline in cars and natural gas in buildings. Finally, we plan to strive for zero waste and store as much carbon as we can in our trees and soil.
Step 1: Community Choice Energy
Greener electricity at a lower cost is coming in 2020.
In December 2018, San Luis Obispo and Morro Bay became the first (of many!) cities in San Luis Obispo County to join Monterey Bay Community Power (MBCP), a regional public agency providing competitively priced carbon-free electricity to residents and businesses on the Central Coast via PG&E transmission lines.
Step 2: Electric Reach Codes
San Luis Obispo is leading the way to cleaner, safer and more energy efficient homes to protect our families and defeat climate change.
Come to our City Council meeting on September 3, 2019 to express your desire for clean, healthy and carbon free homes now and in the future: pic.twitter.com/L9qroijQEu
