MTcares, Inc. (Montana Community Affordable Renewable Energy Saves) is a non-partisan, 501C4 Montana corporation seeking your signature (below) or help supporting a 2018 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 when we tried this in 2016, I-180 received 34% of the signatures it needed to qualify for the 2016 ballot. In the future, if 25,468 Montana signatures are gathered by June 22, 2018, over the full 12 month that is allowed, it is quite possible this improved Initiative could make the 2018 ballot. 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 slow 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.
