sf east bay area sb 43 brainstorming
..:: What's this all about? ::..
Connecting, collaborating, compiling community-based solutions...
...for bringing more renewable energy systems online in the SF East Bay.
We are a group of volunteers interested in further exploring ideas for potential San Francisco (SF) East Bay projects for approved emerging renewable energy systems technologies e.g.wind, solar, biomass, hydrokinetic, fuel cells, geothermal, etc. in distributed generation applications which could happen now due to new state law mandate under SB 43.
These brainstorming meetings serve as a means to glean the level of interest from various folks from around Alameda County (or nearby areas in the SF Bay Area) who might be interested in coordinating and collaborating on a project(s). And/Or, these meetings serve as a medium for discussing and learning more about possibilities under this emerging model, and how more local ownership might fit in.
