The U.S. Department of Energy has identified the top 25 cities using creative ways to encourage solar energy installations by helping them make sense financially.
That doesn’t mean giving into to demands from the local utility for a monopoly on solar power that gives a blank check for higher rates as Measure B proposes.
You’ll note five cities in San Francisco and Northern California and San Diego make the list but no LA. That’s because the DWP and its union, the IBEW, have failed to deliver on promise after promise promise to go solar and now are offering a lot of pie-in-the-sky promises again.
They can’t be trusted with a fourth strike. Vote NO on Measure B

Solar America Cities
Cities across the country are taking action to make solar energy a
more viable option for their communities. These Solar America Cities
are using innovative approaches to remove market barriers to solar and
to encourage adoption of solar energy technologies at the local level.
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) selected 13 Solar America Cities
in June 2007 and an additional 12 cities in March 2008 to help lay the
foundation for a solar energy market that can serve as a model for
cities around the nation.
