Breaking News: Assemblymember Phil Ting re-launches Reset San Francisco

Environment

San Francisco is at the vanguard of the 21st century green economy. By pioneering programs to educate our community and by creating incentives for residents and businesses alike to go green, we have created environmental standards unsurpassed by most American cities. Yet we can do better.

In 2008, Phil Ting helped launch GoSolarSF – San Francisco’s first municipal solar energy incentive program, and also one of its most successful. This program, coupled with the California Solar Initiative, could pay for more than half the cost of a solar power system installed in San Francisco.

The demand for environmental incentive programs is high in San Francisco – as it should be. Our city has one of the largest and most aggressive solar incentive programs in the nation. Our green building standards outrank all others. And we are working to build the country’s first electric vehicle network. Programs like these empower San Franciscans to reduce our carbon footprint and integrate renewable energy into our daily lives. But when it comes to the environment, our work is never done.
