And as Harrington acknowledged, renewable power rates are "much, much more stable than natural gas, oil, those kinds of things."
Besides, the real risk is that San Francisco will continue to violate the Raker Act and allow PG&E's illegal monopoly to continue unabated. The PUC needs to get moving, now. Harrington should set a deadline, well in advance of the June election, and direct his staff to make every possible effort to get the program going by then. Newsom should publicly announce his support for the project and demand that the PUC finish its work in time to beat PG&E's anti-public-power measure (unless he wants to run for lieutenant governor as the mayor who went back on his own positions and allowed PG&E to control the city).
Because right now, the only thing that has to happen for PG&E to win is nothing. *
