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.
