On-Going: It is Done! All Cities in Marin and the County Have Opted-Up to 100% Renewable Energy. Have You?

Aug 21, 2017

This year, thanks to your efforts, all Marin County governments have now gone Deep Green!  You might want to call and thank your City Council members and Board of Supervisor representative for making Marin a 100% clean energy county.  350Marin members Helene Marsh and Sarah Loughran came up with and guided  a great county-wide initiative to get municipalities and the County of Marin to switch their electricity accounts (for all the public buildings, street lights, etc.) to MCE Deep Green, (100% Green Energy).  350Marin strongly supports their great leadership on this, which is aligned with the goals of our Clean Energy campaign.

The list of Marin cities, towns, and departments that had already gone Deep Green includes Fairfax, San Anselmo, Belvedere, and Sausalito, as well as the Marin Agricultural Land Trust, Point Reyes National Seashore, and the Tamalpais Community Services District. As of April 18 and 19th respectively, Corte Madera and Larkspur joined them. And Novato did the same thing on May 2nd. Following in June, Ross and San Rafael voted to go Deep Green, and the County did as well. And then, Mill Valley!  And on Oct. 4th, Tiburon joined the crowd to Make 100% of Marin 100%!!

 

Corte MaderaApril 18  (Chose Deep Green!)
LarkspurApril 19  (Chose Deep Green!)
Novato – May 2 (Chose Deep Green!)
Ross – June 8th  (Chose Deep Green!)
Mill Valley – July 17th (Chose Deep Green!)
San Rafael June 5th (Chose Deep Green!)
County of Marin – June 19th (Chose Deep Green!)

Tiburon – On Oct. 4th, Tiburon voted to opt-up to Deep Green, joining the County and all other cities in Marin to purchase MceCleanEnergy Deep Green for their municipal accounts.  That means 100% of Marin is 100%, only County in the US.  Can residents and businesses do the same?

This is it.  It is time for you to opt-up to Deep Green with MCE as well – if you haven’t already – which you can do easily by going HERE

You can contact the leaders for this campaign and thank then for a job well done:
