Stop the Shell Shock – Don’t Double Our Electricity Rates!

The Shell Energy contract recently approved by the Board of Supervisors is projected to DOUBLE electricity generation rates in San Francisco. What’s worse is that the money will be taken out of our pockets without our consent. After being automatically enrolled, many families will pay $500 more per year, and according to City figures, some families will pay up to $1,000 more per year under this system.

The contract will also hurt the economy by raising the City’s electric bill, costing taxpayers more and eating into budgets for vital city services. On top of that, the City is forecasting the loss of 100 local jobs – all so they can go into business with Houston-based Shell Energy.

It’s time to stop the Shell Shock! Sign the petition today and ask the Board and the Mayor to reconsider DOUBLING the electric rates of working San Franciscans!

I am contacting you today to ask you to reconsider your support of the SF-Shell contract. Moving forward with this deal is projected to DOUBLE electricity generation rates in San Francisco - and what's worse is that the money will be taken out of our pockets without our consent. San Francisco families are already being squeezed by this recession - now is NOT the time to subject us to a rate increase. And Shell's values, especially their abysmal environmental record, isn't something I feel I should be required to support.

Please reconsider your support for this flawed deal.

Sincerely,
