Re: “Moving Forward

To Reply to Ethan:

These are great questions, which are easily answered:

"Whats is the source of renewable energy?"
It depends on what they can negotiate, but will be at least 33% renewable, and could be as high as 100% renewable if you want pay whatever that 100% renewable rate will be. RECs will be used to supplement this -- renewable energy credits from clean energy projects around the country. These are the same credits PG&E likes to brag about using, except SCP will be using them as a bridge to local renewable energy.

"How are we promoting "Go Local" by purchasing energy from out of state multi-national companies… How are we decreasing our carbon footprint through supporting companies with some of highest reported negative environmental externalities?"
The BEST part about Sonoma Clean Power is that the ratepayer money over the years will be invested to both improve local energy efficiency and create local energy projects, which is way above and beyond what any other CCA is going on around the country. PG&E definitely doesn't do this.

These local energy projects will create:
Local jobs
Local energy security
A buffer between us and rising and falling prices of the energy market, which is HUGE.

Do a web search for FAQ and Sonoma Clean Power to find their pdf that addresses a lot of this stuff.
