California Proposition 7

Proposition 7: Requires all utilities, including government-owned utilities, to generate 20% of their power from renewable energy by 2010, a standard currently applicable only to private electrical corporations. Raises requirement for all utilities to 40% by 2020 and 50% by 2025. Imposes penalties for noncompliance. Fast-tracks approval for new renewable energy plants. Requires utilities to sign longer contracts (20 year minimum) to procure renewable energy. Creates Solar and Clean Energy Transmission Account to purchase property or rights of way for renewable energy.

My Take

What ever happened to California’s requirement for the number of electric vehicle on the road? It went nowhere! Same thing will happen with this crap bill. Meanwhile, it’s going to cost us an additional $3.4 million.

3.4 million for absolutely nothing folks!


  1. GM killed that effort. And if you vote no on prop 7, then you will have allowed PG&E, Sempra, and Edison to have killed clean renewable energy in California.

  2. Fred

    Why not just Californians free solar panels for our roofs. This way we don’t need those energy companies any more.
