Reasons for signing

  • * Building a brand new solar (or wind) with (or without) battery storage plant OR a brand new utility-size battery storage plant is actually CHEAPER (this includes the latest natural gas-burning combined-cycle plants, which generally produce the least expensive power available from fossil fuels) and it performs MUCH BETTER than continuing to operate an existing natural gas or coal power plant. * More than 3 times the amount of permanent jobs than in a fossil fuel or nuclear energy economy.
  • the electricity price is vnot good for the economy
  • Take control of your own energy needs and prevent opportunities for corruption
