Governors: You have the power to mainstream Renewable Power.
Community Choice Energy (often called Community Choice Aggregate Energy, aka CCA) legislation is now in 7 STATES: CA, IL, MA, OH, NJ, NY and RI. The most recent was passed in the NY legislature in April 2016.
Once this legislation is passed at the state level, it allows county supervisors to begin setting up a non-profit to procure SOLAR and SMALL WIND POWER and ENERGY STORAGE to partner with the local electric utility. This has been mandated in these 7 STATES.
This is how Marin county in CA in 2010, became the first county in the state, to set up their non-profit called Marin Clean Energy (MCE). Since then, all SF Bay Area 9 counties are now trending to 100% Renewable Power, because of Marin county's leadership. More counties have joined this effort in the state: San Diego county, Monterey/SantaCruz and SanBenito counties. Placer county in the Sierra Mtns. Mendocino county has piggybacked onto Sonoma county's. Yolo county. More are getting planned.

Stanford Univ environmental engineer Professor Mark Z Jacobson and his blueprint team have shown how all 50 states can go 100% Renewable with 50 blueprints. Find out how your state can move in this direction, at www.theSolutionsProject.org
Why is this important?
Our 501 c3 non-profit, based in Danville CA, called Transition Express Inc believe WE CAN DOUBLE THE NUMBER OF STATES with CCA LEGISLATION and trend towards 34 STATES with this legislation to HAVE RENEWABLE POWER GO NATIONAL.
We need governors to be leaders on this.
There are 3 NEW SCIENTIFIC STUDIES OUT in March/April 2018, documenting our accelerating climate change. They document the 'Jet Stream Slowing Down' (Mann study/Penn State), 'Mother Nature Going Out of Sync' (Kharouba study/Univ of Ottawa) and 'Accelerating Melting of Glaciers' (Winski study/Dartmouth).
We need to accelerate RENEWABLE POWER to counteract this most CONCERNING TRENDING TOWARDS CLIMATE CHAOS.
GOVERNORS: we need your commitment to RENEWABLE POWER, NOW.
