Let's make Mar Vista the first clean electricity neighborhood in Los Angeles!
Saturday was International Day of Climate Action and Sunday was a milestone for climate action in Mar Vista!
The Mar Vista Green Committee unanimously approved a motion to make Mar Vista the first clean electricity neighborhood in Los Angeles, with a goal of 100% clean electricity by 2018. The motion must be approved by the Mar Vista Community Council (MVCC) in two weeks, on November 10, and you can help! Please sign the petition that will be presented to the MVCC, urging Mar Vista to make the switch to solar.
With Million Solar Roofs funding, solar electricity is now cheaper than coal-powered electricity for many homeowners with solar-friendly rooftops. Next year the LADWP will introduce "virtual net metering" along with other ways for businesses and residents in apartments and condos to go solar too! And with community support, Mar Vista can be a leader in installing solar panels on our schools, library and post office.
