PG&E Funds Anti-Green Measure

Pacific Gas and Electric Company has already spent $6.5 million on a June ballot measure that would make it much tougher for cities to purchase renewable energy on their own. And the public utility plans to spend millions more of rate-payer dollars on its measure, Proposition 16. PG&E is digging deep into its treasury because it fears losing market share if municipalities get into the public power business in order to increase their usage of green energy, including solar and wind power.
