Support 100% Clean Energy Use By Marin Cities!

Help make Marin a 100% clean energy county by writing a brief letter to your city council and the County of Marin, urging them to switch to all renewable energy, if they haven't already!  solar-panels.jpg350Marin members Helene Marsh and Sarah Loughran are working on a great county-wide initiative to get municipalities and the County of Marin to switch their electricity accounts (for all the public buildings, street lights, etc.) to MCE Deep Green, (100% Green Energy).  350Marin supports this initiative, which is aligned with the goals of our Clean Energy campaign.

Here are some of the cities, towns, and departments within Marin that have already gone Deep Green:  Fairfax, San Anselmo, Belvedere, and Sausalito, as well as the Marin Agricultural Land Trust, Point Reyes National Seashore, and the Tamalpais Community Services District. Two weeks ago, Corte Madera and Larkspur joined them. And Novato did the same this week!  All unanimous votes! The big question is "Which City or Town in Marin will be the last one to go Deep Green?"  Or will the County wait until every City and Town says they are doing it? 

Marin County, Mill Valley, and San Rafael have all committed to evaluate participation in the Deep Green program this year. They need to hear your voice soon if you're a resident!  And there are some budget related meetings to go to as well where this may be discussed/decided:

 
Corte Madera - April 18  (Chose Deep Green!)
Larkspur - April 19  (Chose Deep Green!)
Novato - May 2 (Chose Deep Green!)
Ross - May 4th
Mill Valley - May 15th
San Rafael - June 2nd 
County of Marin - June 19th

Just click on the above City names to see the letter instructions/ideas for that City. Use this to write a letter (and then either email it or send it via snail mail) & let then know it's time to go Deep Green!  Note that you can also write a letter to the Board of Supervisors telling the County to use Deep Green for all of their electricity accounts at the same time

Email addresses are HERE or use the address of the City in the letter template to send via snail mail.
