NEWS AND EVENTS

Stand up to support CLEAN POWER in your city!
Sonoma Clean Power, a proposed local program that buys and generates electrical power for residents and businesses, was approved by the Board of Supervisors for the unincorporated part of Sonoma County on April 23. Now the question comes to your city! Do you want a choice about how your electrical power is generated? You won’t have a choice unless your city votes “yes.”

Come tell your representatives you want:
· Choice
· Jobs and an economic boost by emphasizing local power
· Clean local power

Tell your city, “Give us a choice! JOIN the SONOMA CLEAN POWER AUTHORITY!”

Please attend when Sonoma Clean Power will be on council agendas on the following dates:
Sebastopol – May 7th 6:00pm
Cloverdale – May 8th 6:30pm
Rohnert Park – May 14th 5:00pm
Windsor – May 15th 5:00pm
Petaluma – May 20th 7:00pm
Santa Rosa – May 21st 4:00pm
Cotati – May 22nd 7:00pm
Sonoma – June 3rd 6:00pm
(Please check city websites for last minute changes.)

Sonoma County
General Plan 2020
Sonoma County has signed an ambitious Cool Communities pledge to reduce greenhouse gas emissions 25% below 1990 levels by 2015, but a program to meet this goal is not even mentioned in the ongoing General Plan Update. It's not too late to put such a program in the General Plan - the Board of Supervisors needs to hear from residents how important this is to us.

What is the General Plan?
