Supes greenlight CleanPowerSF search

The Board of Supervisors unanimously approved legislation Tuesday in a second and final vote to allow The City issue request for proposals for companies to help San Francisco get into the green energy business.

Tuesday’s vote is a significant step for the City to move forward with its CleanPowerSF program, which strives to provide at least 50% of CleanPowerSF's energy from renewable resources and energy efficiency within ten years.

The City could have an agreement in place by May 2010 that aims to provide San Francisco’s power consumers with less-expensive energy from more renewable sources.
