The San Francisco Clean Energy Act will appear on the November 4, 2008 ballot in San Francisco.[1]

The measure calls on the city to:

  • Produce more than half of its energy through renewable sources within a decade. However, it defines "renewable sources" as simply non-nuclear, as opposed to the State of California's more stringent definition.
  • Explore a move toward city control of its power. There is no mandate to stop a takeover of private utilities by the board, however, if the study does not result in a recommendation for a public power takeover.
  • Fulfill 51 percent of its energy needs through renewable energy by 2017, rising to 75 percent by 2030, and 100 percent "or the greatest amount technologically feasible or practicable" by 2040.

Supervisor Ross Mirkarimi, the original sponsor of the charter amendment, said it represents "what San Francisco's green energy should strive for." Mirkarimi said it was "not a hostile takeover" of private power companies, but represented "what should be the indigenous right of San Franciscans."
