Link to SF Solar Initiative PROP H web site On November 6, San Francisco voters approved a ballot measure giving The City unlimited revenue bond authority to build solar, wind and conservation on residences, businesses and government buildings.

Proposition H, written as the financial vehicle for a proposed 50 MW San Francisco Solar Power Facility, amends the city charter to give the Board of Supervisors authority to issue revenue bonds at will to develop renewable energy facilities and implement conservation in both the public and private sectors. Proposition B, which also passed on Tuesday, is restricted to city government and is limited to $100 million.
