Well done Palo Alto. As far as I know this has been made possible because over 20% of Palo Altans have opted for Palo Alto Green and accepted to pay a slightly higher price for their electricity thus allowing the city to purchase "green" power.

So, it does not take anything away from the city's resources to deal with other issues.

I am glad Palo Alto has this program and received this award.

Palo Alto can solve its energy crisis--but it can't solve crime?
I wonder how that works...

Palo Alto gets an "honor" from a group of "green" companies for being one of their best customers (suckers) paying too much for our energy from the over-priced, government-subsidized companies and agencies pushing their "green" paraphernalia.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
