Community Choice Energy

Feature story - May 17, 2006

More than 300 activists stood on the steps of San Francisco's City Hall this week to demonstrate their support for renewable energy - by shining small mirrors onto the building. That's because San Francisco is on the verge of building the largest municipal clean energy network in the world, and the city's mayor can make it happen.

At a time of skyrocketing energy prices, and in the shadow of Bush's failure to address global warming, San Francisco is a glowing example of local leadership.

And what happens in San Francisco will have an important impact on the rest of the nation, and indeed, the world. That's because this project won't just be the largest renewable energy network in the country - it will be the largest in the WORLD, setting a precedent that every city, large or small, can follow.

No matter where you live, what happens now in San Francisco could change the future of renewable energy everywhere. That means less pollution, a step toward solving global warming, and lower energy costs.

You don't have to shine your mirror on City Hall to express your support for renewable energy - just send a note to Mayor Newsom now.

Just a minute of your time could literally change the world.

Take Action

Thank Mayor Newsom for his courage and leadership in making San Francisco the world leader in renewable energy.
