SDG&E, Please Don’t Take My Sunshine Away!

SDG&E wants to impose a new fee (aka TAX) on homeowners, schools, businesses, and others with rooftop solar. This is a shameless effort by this investor-owned utility to increase profits and control renewable energy sources. It would be devastating to the local clean energy industry and jobs. Because of increased costs, public entities, like school and water districts, would have to make further cuts to essential services. Homeowners who bought solar systems they could afford would be stuck with higher bills. We need policies to shift us toward clean energy and a sustainable planet, not away from it.

Join us this Wednesday to say “No, you can’t take my sunshine away!

WHEN: Wednesday, January 18, 11:45 am – 1:00 pm

WHERE: SDG&E Energy Innovation Center , 4760 Clairemont Mesa Blvd (in the Diane Shopping Center ). SDG&E is holding an open house of their new innovation center to impress regional VIPs and the general public. We’ll be gathered outside.

WHAT: We will be holding signs, singing, talking to passersby and the press. . . . .

PARKING: There is large parking lot on three sides of the SDG&E Center . Please park to the sides rather than directly in front of the Center. We will gather on the public sidewalk between the parking lot and Clairemont Mesa Boulevard at 11:45 am.

Please arrive promptly at 11:45 AM as we will practice our song and distribute signs.

Local city councils, school districts, and even Wal-Mart are coming out against SDG&E’s solar tax and so can you!!! Join us this Wednesday to say “SDG&E, Please Don’t Take My Sunshine Away!”
