Battle For The Grid:

Who Will Control Electric Power In San Francisco?

With David Hochschild on City Solar Prop. B, Ross Mirkarimi on (SF-MUD) Prop. I, MUD Board Candidates Joe Veronese, Dan Kalb, Rose Tsai, Calvin Webster, plus Terry Andre on Solar Technology.

Sunday, October 14, 2001 1:00 p.m.
at 3220 Sacramento Street (near Lyon)
San Francisco, California

On Tuesday, November 6, San Francisco residents will go to the polls to vote on an unprecedented number of controversial ballot measures that will decide who is going to control their water, power, and telecommunications infrastructure.

Proposition B will give the City and County of San Francisco authority to issue revenue bonds to fund construction of solar power equipment on city government buildings.

Proposition F will replace San Francisco’s Public Utilities Commission with a new Municipal Power and Water Agency to be a provider of these resources to San Franciscans.

Proposition H gives the City of San Francisco authority to issue revenue bonds without further voter approval to fund residents and businesses who wish to construct renewable energy facilities on their property in San Francisco.

Proposition I will create a San Francisco-Brisbane Municipal Utility District (MUD). The MUD will have authority to purchase and build power and telecommunications lines and facilities in San Francisco. If Prop I and Prop F both pass, an interesting situation could occur with the creation of 2 independent agencies each trying to manage many of the same resources.

Our meeting will feature information on all these propositions as well as a presentation by Terry Andre on current solar power technology available for homeowners and businesses. Terry has 15 years experience in Computer and Telecom R & D. She currently works at the solar division of Palo Alto Hardware. She will also show her Honda Insight hybrid electric car.

An online video of Terry Andre's Solar Technology presentation is available here.
