Major Action: The UC Energy Systems Petition of 2020
The UC Energy Systems Petition is closed; however you can access the final text and full list of signatures by clicking on the image to the right.
The petition was signed by 3,500 UC members, and backed by unions representing 50,000, the associated students and graduate and professional council.
The petition called for the UC Campuses to make plans to electrify. The process of making plans must start now, and probably costs just a few million for all campuses. Making plans could take a year or two. Only then, will the campuses be ready for large Federal stimulus, or state bonds, or philanthropy to actually replace their co-generation plants.
