CLAIM FROM PG&E AND SO. CAL. EDISON:

    "Forces small wind and solar companies out of the market." FALSE

    TRUTH

    Prop. 7 expands the renewable requirements for all utilities from 20% to 50%. All wind and solar companies will benefit from this market growth, regardless of size. It is basic economics.
    CLAIM FROM PG&E AND SO. CAL. EDISON:

    Measure locks in rates at 10% above market price and will lead to significant rate increases. FALSE

    TRUTH
    It's PG&E and So. Cal. Edison that are raising the rates, not Prop. 7. PG&E is raising rates 6.5% this year; and Edison is raising rates 16% this year. The impact of Prop. 7 will never raise consumers' bills more than 3% over market price in its last year of full implementation: 2025. PG&E and So. Cal. Edison are hiding behind the smokescreen of their misleading TV commercials in the hope that consumers forget that it is the utilities which raise our rates.
    CLAIM FROM PG&E AND SO. CAL. EDISON:

    Creates market conditions ripe for manipulation, much like occurred during the last energy crisis. FALSE

    TRUTH

    Absurd! The big utilities and their utility colleagues in ENRON caused the last energy crisis. We need to be vigilant of their manipulations. Prop. 7 guarantees that all utility contracts will be carefully reviewed before approval to assure that they are fair and reasonable.

Without raising taxes on anyone, Proposition 7 will assure that by 2025 half of the electricity in California comes from solar and clean energy resources, including wind, geothermal, biomass tidal, and small hydro. Unlike today, all California utilities will be required to meet these solar and clean energy goals.


The proposition will not raise our taxes one cent. The proposition creates goals for private companies to provide solar and clean electricity; and deadlines for the utilities to provide solar and clean electricity-half by 2025.


So far, all solar and clean electricity contracts have been below the market price! The Public Utilities Commission published a study that said that if we want a 33% goal of solar and clean electricity by 2020, our long term rates would go down. The non-partisan State of California Legislative Analyst Office found out that this proposition provides possible offsetting cost savings over the long term to the extent the proposition hastens renewable energy development. That's a trend we can all live with.
