To: PG&E, Southern California Edison, San Diego Gas and a Electric, etc.

PG&E and other gas and electric companies please commit to moving to renewable energy

Petition Text

Please commit to transition from gas and electric to solar, wind and other green/renewable energies other than nuclear.

Why is this important?

This is important for our environment and future of our planet. A natural gas pipeline owned by Pacific Gas & Electric exploded into flames in the Crestmoor residential neighborhood 2 mi west of San Francisco. As of September 29, 2010, the death toll was eight people and 58 injured. The United States Geological Survey registered the explosion and resulting shock wave as a magnitude 1.1 earthquake. On April 9, 2015, the Public Utilities Commission fined PG&E $1.6 billion. However, fines are not enough to change the policies of energy. We must stand together to ask these companies commit to changing how energy is delivered. California is at the forefront of energy policy in the United States. By asking our energy companies to commit to changing to renewable we are showing the world it can be done.

Renewable Energy Transmission Initiative:
"Lastly, the informal Renewable Energy Transmission Initiative (RETI) process is influencing formal transmission planning. The electric utilities, the California ISO, and the Energy Commission have all indicated their commitment to consider RETI output with regard to their transmission planning processes. For example, the California ISO has committed to considering the RETI conceptual transmission plan in its 2010 annual planning process and in its recently initiated work to develop a 33 percent renewable conceptual transmission plan to support its 2010 annual planning process. The RETI collaborative has already created momentum toward establishment of key elements of a formal statewide transmission planning process." ( It is now 2015 and we must demand more.
