MTcares, Inc. (Montana Community Affordable Renewable Energy Saves) is a non-partisan, 501C4 Montana corporation seeking your signature (below) supporting I-180, a 2016 ballot measure to require investor owned utilities to supply 80% of their electricity from renewable energy by 2050, and providing retraining, enhanced unemployment benefits, and pension support for fossil fuel workers displaced by the transition to clean energy.
During the 4 months of signature gathering, I-180 only received 34% of the signatures it needed to qualify for the 2016 ballot. In the future, if signatures are gathered over the full 12 month that is allowed, it is quite possible I-180 could make the 2018 ballot. No decision has been made concerning where that effort will be undertaken. However, I-180 has been amended and is being circulated for comment. Click the ABOUT menu (above right side) for a fuller explanation and copy of the amended initiative. And you may also participate in the poll and follow progress on Facebook.
Eighty percent clean energy is the level climate scientists say we must reach by 2050 to quell global warming. Montana now only requires 15% in 2015.
CLEAN ELECTRICITY SAVES CONSUMERS MONEY Contracts for wind power are being signed for 2.5¢/kWh; under 4¢/kWh for power from solar collectors. At more than 5¢/kwh, electricity generated from coal cannot compete.
