Burt Moldow, our president, gave an excellent presentation centered on the posed threat of the long-term plan for storage of nuclear waste at the San Onofre Nuclear Station, just 22 miles from Laguna Woods Village. He also discussed what we can do to conserve and generate our own energy.
Concerned Citizens showed a film featuring Al Gore doing the February 2016 Ted Talk, entitled "The Case for Optimism"
January 2016, The Energy Club co-sponsored the excellent filmMerchant of DoubtCraig Preston of the Citizens Climate Lobby was there and introduced the film and suggested actions that we may take as private citizens to counter the barrage of untruths. Eric Conway, Merchants of Doubt co-author, attended the screening and answered questions.*****We Carpooled to Solar Decathlon onOctober 15, 2015
Last week, the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) voted against Big Energy’s crippling proposal that would have increased Californians' energy bills and made it harder for consumers to generate their own clean solar power.(1)
Together we helped California continue to be a leader in clean energy -- refusing to let short-sighted energy companies decide our policy.
Here’s the story. The CPUC voted to extend California’s “net metering” system -- the current policy in California and over 40 other states that gives solar customers fair, full credit for the clean energy they produce. It also allows customers to send excess energy back to the grid for others to use. It is a big reason why we have more than TRIPLED the amount of rooftop solar in California, and why the average installed rooftop solar costs have dropped by over 50%
If the energy companies -- including Southern California Edison, Pacific Gas & Electric, and San Diego Gas & Electric -- got their way, California families would no longer have had incentive to go solar. It would have been a huge blow to our state’s clean energy goals, resulting in higher bills and the loss of thousands of jobs.
The CPUC rejected Big Energy’s proposal to block CA’s net metering system! Now California still leads the nation in clean energy, and our families, businesses, and schools can continue to save on their energy bills by going solar!
