Hello Encinitas Sierra Club members and supporters,
Mayor Blakespear did something very good and I hope you will send her a thank you note. Last year the Sierra Club launched a national campaign called Ready for 100 to get cities to set 100% clean energy goals, as Del Mar and San Diego have already done. To help this along, Ready for 100 recently introduced the Mayors for 100% Clean Energy initiative so that mayors can express support for this vision and work to bring their cities on board. You can read about it here: www.sierraclub.org/ready-for-100/mayors-for-clean-energy
I am happy to tell you that Mayor Blakespear signed on. Her support for this couldn't be more timely as we now know that cities and states will have to lead the climate change fight. Mayor Blakespear also knows that accelerating the clean energy revolution saves money for Encinitas residents, schools, and businesses as they gain greater access to things like rooftop solar, and it makes the local economy stronger through job creation.
Please send her a thank you note at firstname.lastname@example.org
Lastly, we have a wonderful team of Encinitas volunteers working on getting Encinitas and other north coastal cities to launch a non-profit electricity provider that will give us local control over the type of power that keeps our lights on and the rates we pay for it. It's called Community Choice Energy and is, in fact, the best tool the city has to reach 100% clean energy for our electricity. You can learn more about this and find volunteer opportunities here: www.ccenorthcoastal.org
