Proposition G

By Naomi Outlaw

Also known as the “San Francisco Renewable Energy Truth In Advertising Act”, Proposition G will require the City to define renewable, greenhouse-gas free electricity as electricity solely derived from renewable resources located or adjacent to California, or electricity generated by the Hetch Hetchy Reservoir.

This proposition also requires the city to send out three notices informing citizens of CleanPowerSF’s renewable energy percentages before the program commences and then a notice of the current percentage in every communication about the program.

Originally supported by IBEW 1245, one of PG&E’s three unions, they withdrew their support and instead endorsed Proposition H. According to Hoodline, Bernalwood and the Libertarian Party of San Francisco still support the measure while the League of Women Voters, the League of Pissed Off Voters, and Supervisors London Breed, John Avalos, Scott Wiener and Julie Christensen oppose the bill.
