We need you to speak to the East Bay Community Energy board members, Wednesday June 19, 2019 at 6:00pm City of San Leandro, 835 E. 14th Street, San Leandro CA to demand a larger budget for an East Bay Green New Deal!
Background:In 2016, the East Bay Clean Power Alliance advocated for and won a Community Choice energy program--East Bay Community Energy that committed to developing local clean energy benefit programs and projects in Alameda County.The board of supervisors put forth $500,000 to develop a Local Development Business Plan (LDBP), a plan for creating a clean energy infrastructure at home, to create clean energy jobs, affordable clean energy, improve health and keep the energy wealth local.
In 2018 the Local Development Business Plan was completed and with your help, was adopted!
Now in 2019, we need to make East Bay Community Energy put forth a significant amount of money. We are demanding $7,280,000, or 1.8% of the Energy Operations budget, towards the following programs:
