DON'T BUY THEIR SCARE TACTICS!
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.
