Petition Closed

San Francisco’s city government is considering partnering with Shell Energy of North America to inaugurate SF’s so-called “clean power” program. But the Controller’s report on the contract makes clear that San Franciscans would see their rates go up, city services go down, the local economy get worse and jobs would be lost.

This would Shell Shock San Francisco and its residents!

If the San Francisco Shell Shock contract goes through, the average home can expect to see a rate increase of 77% over their current PG&E electricity generation rates. The report also predicts a reduction in services and a loss of jobs. It would hurt the local economy by taking more than $13.2 million out of our economy through increased electricity costs.

Sign the petition today and stop San Francisco from getting Shell Shocked!

I am contacting you today to urge you to VOTE NO on the SF-Shell contract. The Controller’s report makes clear that this deal would cause our rates to go up, city services to go down and the local economy to get worse. This would Shell Shock San Francisco!

Please oppose the contract. In these tough economic times, the last thing the City should be considering is a plan that would lead to service reductions and job losses. Now is not the time to make it tougher for working families to get by. And Shell’s values, especially their abysmal environmental record, aren’t in sync with what most San Franciscans want to support.

Please oppose the contract and stop San Francisco from getting Shell Shocked!
