SF SOLAR Here are the key reasons to support a Feed-in Payment (FiP) & oppose a CCA.
Participatory democracy. If we each have solar panels, we each can harvest solar energy & so each contribute to the common solution to global climate crisis & each get paid by PG&E $0.54 hour for feeding energy onto the grid.
2 - We each benefit equally from income from the grid operator PG&E. Speak Tue 2pm at the SF Bd of Sups 9-25-12 for a FiP.
3- Ecological wisdom. Enough sun falls on SF daily to power every home, street car, school & electric car today. We can do it locally. We do not need to give Shell Oil $20 M for 5 years = $100 M. Shell can’t build a solar farm for just 5 years. Solar lasts for a 100 years. The CCA will hook SF for endless payments to Shell.
4- Harvesting solar locally prevents oil wars. Giving Shell $20 M will give $ to the war machine. Vote No on CCA. Oil companies can not become solar companies. Wolves can not become sheep.
5- Decentralization. If each building in SF has its own solar, we each get an equal share of energy for light. When the grid goes down, during a quake, we each still have light. Giving $20M to Shell is the opposite. That is giving $ to the 1% to make more wars to steal oil. When the grid goes down, we are without light.
6- Community based economics. We recognize it is essential to create sustainable solar based economic system today, that creates local solar jobs for all, while maintaining a healthy world environment. Communities must create decentralized solar development that creates local jobs in SF, not give $20 M to Shell to create jobs in Nevada. We support local independently owned small solar utilities, family companies, not Shell or PG&E. Vote No on the CCA because CCA will cause a loss of 95 jobs, loss of $20 million, and leave us without power when the grid goes down.
7- Feminism. We want a society that gives more power & due process to women equally. The Feed-in Payback gives women equal power.
8- Diversity promotes the respectful relationships between the many different groups who all benefit from harvesting solar, to make money from the grid, to create equality in income. Require PG&E to pay everyone who harvests solar from their apartment $0.54 hour for feeding energy onto the grid. See the free Youtube movie, “Here Comes the Sun-Scheer”
Read: “Solar Economy” by Hermann Scheer.
9- Personal & global responsibility. If each family has 30 panels, that improves their personal income & enhances world ecological balance. This allows each family to be paid by PG&E $3,000. a month, so there is no need to give $20 M to Shell oil.
Speak at the SF Bd. of Supervisors 2pm Tue.
