Bummer: Even Lefties In San Francisco Not To Keen On “Green” Energy

Buried over at the S.F. Chronicle

Green vs. green: San Franciscans’ enthusiasm for going green with “clean energy” in their own homes appears to be about as flat as the economy.

A recent poll of 3,500 residents by the city’s Public Utilities Commission found that 52 percent would probably stay with Pacific Gas and Electric Co. That’s just 3 percentage points more than in a similar poll taken last year.

Those willing to pay “a little bit more” for clean wind and solar power declined to 37 percent, from 45 percent the year before.

And that’s after the estimated increase was dropped by more than half – from $14 more a month to just $6.

The poll was conducted in order to test the waters regarding the city spending $19.5 million on a project to contract with Shell Energy to buy “green” energy and deliver it through regular power lines. Even the far left folks in San Francisco aren’t willing to Do Their Part and pay more for energy.

    BWWWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAA

    I think the main point of poll is this:

    Those willing to pay “a little bit more” for clean wind and solar power declined to 37 percent,

    and

    And that’s after the estimated increase was dropped by more than half – from $14 more a month to just $6.

    So, even when they TOLD the people that it would only cost $6 instead of $14, only a third SanFrannies were willing to do what they demand others do.

    Not To Keen On “Green” Energy

    I just thought you were talking about how Leftists and Greenies didn’t want to take a trip to visit to the town of Keen on the island of “green energy”.

    silly me.
