pg e source of energy expensive and volatile
PG&E Source of Energy – Expensive and Volatile

PG&E is largely dependent upon natural gas, an expensive and volatile source of power.

California nuclear plants are being decommissioned, not replaced

comparing the solar choice and the non solar choice
Comparing the Solar Choice and the Non-Solar Choice

Neither choice is cost or risk free (i.e., electricity is not free)

– Not doing solar means continuing to purchase ~ 21 million kWh ($3.68 million) per year of electricity at unknown but likely increasing rates over the life of the system.

– Doing solar would reduce PG&E usage by ~17 million kWh per year and would enable the District to capture ~$16 million in CSI incentive payments during the first 5 years.

SunPower will offset 91% of the District’s PG&E bills by generating 81% of the District’s energy usage

Energy Bill Savings

*Annual Current Energy Bill is based on PG&E rate tariff as of June 1st, 2010

(Historical Energy Bill $3,365,134)
