CEOs oppose cuts to San Francisco's GoSolar program
Bay Area solar CEOs sent a letter to San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee to protest cuts to a solar incentive program.
Bay Area CEOs are calling on San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee to restore proposed cuts to the GoSolarSF program.
The program, which has been funded with $5 million in taxpayer money for the past several years but proposed budget cuts lop $3 million from the program over each of the next two years.
The leaders of SunRun, Clean Power Finance, First Solar, One Block Off the Grid, Vote Solar, Suntech, SunEdison, Distributed Energy Consumer Advocates and Carbon War Room sent a letter to Lee today asking him to help restore the program. In the letter, they say the program has led to solar development in the city and has been a factor in 208 cleantech businesses locating in San Francisco.
"We are concerned that proposed cuts... will severely undermine this progress and negatively impact San Francisco's clean technology leadership and economic development," the letter said.
