Please join PCE's Reach Code Effort in 2019

Dear Neighbors --

Thanks to your participation in PCE, Menlo Park residents now have very
clean electricity. *Bravo*!

The next critical steps are to replace fossil fuels like gasoline and
methane ("natural gas") with PCE's clean electricity as quickly as possible
-- the UN report from October <https://news.un.org/en/story/2018/10/1022492>
makes the urgency very clear.

The shift to electric vehicles is already well underway; if you've driven a
modern EV you'll know why.

But the shift to electrify buildings is going to be much harder, and local
Reach Building Codes are a key first step. PCE and SVCE
<https://www.svcleanenergy.org/> are working together to provide a "gavel
ready" package of electrification Reach codes for every member agency in

The two agencies and their consultants are doing the heavy lifting, but
that work will go to waste unless each individual city does their part
(estimated by MP city staff at only 30 hours) to join the movement.

Please join this regional effort in 2019!
