With only 12 years to prevent climate catastrophe, local governments around the country are committing themselves to a rapid transition to 100 percent clean energy. We can be proud that Arcata, Eureka, McKinleyville Community Service District, and Humboldt County are among them. But our local clean energy commitments are only meaningful if they are adhered to by the agency that decides how the 46 million dollars a year we pay in electric bills is spent. RCEA has not committed to a 100 percent clean energy goal or created a plan to get us there. Their own Community Advisory Committee has asked them to do so. If you agree with the Community Advisory Committee, please follow this link and send a letter to the RCEA board members.
