“Green” power would come entirely from rooftop solar and other urban sources--not industrial wind or desert solar

July 15, 2012 (San Diego’s East County) –What if you didn’t have to buy power from SDG&E, but could purchase electricity from a local energy cooperative instead?
Suppose the power was generated all from renewable energy--no oil, gas or nuclear? Better yet, all of that renewable power would come from urban sources such as rooftop and parking lot solar--and you could get incentives to put solar on your home or business.
Now envision this "green" advantage as a member of the co-op--you could earn credits by selling your excess solar power.
