6:00 am
we'll go over some of the background mostly on the slor sf i get briefed frequently on cleanpowersf but we'll talk about how to link the two programs and thankfully the programs are common goals you'll see on the screen both programs are important to san francisco overall compliment goals like cleanpowersf but the go solar goals were laid out in policy statements that now embodied in city code so those policy statements and directions came to us back in 2007 when the board of supervisors adopted the initiating owners and designated
6:01 am
puc as the program administrator and asked we appropriate 2, $5 million every year to the program over a 10 year period and directed us to adjust the incentives how they're going the marketplace over the 10 year period and also directed us to cooperate the administration of the paroling program of the go solar with the implementation and administration of the cac program that is now kind of with the cleanpowersf. >> the programs has combotsdz those goals and directions in overall program objectives and that's what you see here very consistent with the goals you know and encourages installation of valor panels and
6:02 am
jobs for san franciscans supporting accelerator projects for low income households and supporting loca businesses so let's take a minute to see who is eligible the for the go solar program and how the incentives will exclusive those objectives so the incentives are sdielgd to encourage the solar panels to increase the mechanically was the installed we help to pay for the system the bigger the system size which is shown across the top of the slides the column hekdz the birthdays the incentive we provide jobs to san franciscans by requiring installers to be ignite for the payments we support the solar projects for low income households to have installations
6:03 am
on low income residential properties the eligible for the sizeable add on you see that listed on the column other than the left the blue you see the ad on if it is an eligibility low income household and then we support the local businesses similarly and adds an incentive for city installers the installer must meet the log business requirements in san francisco in terms of eligibility all of the our customers are hetch hetchy or pubically owned utility likely e inevitable for go solar and get g hd power all of pg&e's customers are eligible for go solar sf and with the introduction of clean power sf we'll evolving be enrolled as
6:04 am
customers in that program and historically the residents of go solar sf funds are now all potential customers of cleanpowersf the linkage is starting to happen as we roll out cleanpowersf so what sources impacts are we seeing more the program we've talked about the objectives and how to get there for the next couple slides will talk about that again incentives have available for the power customers and non-customers so far 3 thousand 4 hundred plus installations completed in san francisco totals 12.3 megawatts of capacity a small portion of those 5 customers were customers of ours through the hetch hetchy customer service offerings of public utility for a small 0.25
6:05 am
mel was the we've accommodated one and 69 new jobs for sdaejsz san franciscans 39 folks are currently employed as of february 13th we're the process together with the mayor's office of economic workforce development mr. mulligan you heard from earlier we're the process of implementing a shift from the existing workforce requirements the program to applying san francisco's first source hire rules to the go solar sf program that will better align with the city programs so far we've paid out 22 point plus million dollars since the program was initiated in 2008, as you can see how it those payments breakdown amongst the eligible groups and this next
6:06 am
slide with the largest portions to the residential customers through the residential protecting or straight up recipient or nonprofit residential so we're seeing less reliance on solar incentives than currently than we have in earlier years of the program and that you can see here this is our sort of program wide view what you're looking is the boars representing the kilowatts of installed and the lines shows the total dollars paid out through the years of the program and as you can see that the installed capacity far exceeds the pay out we're go solar is supporting more projects today with less budget and we're seeing less reliance
6:07 am
on the go solar program to go to solar capacity installed in san francisco so that's our program wide look. >> why is that what would you say. >> i think that is a number of factors one shown the slide we'll go through and that's the fact that the cost of solar harassed come down drastically over this time period if you look at slide 10 as you can see year to year what the total installed cost is the first column or rather the second column and what our incentive contribution was to buy down the cost with the states california solar incentive contribution to buying down the cost and the net cost or was for a system that is a 2
6:08 am
that the 5 kilowatt system as you can see when you look at the last column the net cost column that the cost in recent years have come down when you go over one dlum to the state incentives that is reduced to zero and the costs are still coming down and as you can see they came down from 2011 through 2015 when you look at the go solar incentive column the net costs have come down with the go solar not because we're getting more money from outside but the net costs have come down and the market is able to thrive even with reductions in the incentive payments both by the our program and by the state administered programs i think there is also a
6:09 am
contributing factor to the go solar sf program we surveyed installers to get a sense of what the factors are and one of the factors listed was the champs presented by our workforce requirements and that's part of the reason we're modifying our workforce requirements to align with the city's hiring requirement. >> so the last change in incentives for the go solar sf program occurred in 2013 pr and that net costs have continued to decline without the state incentives and the overall the bottom line is that the current go solar sf incentive has helped to create the lowest costs the program history. >> so we've benefit talking
6:10 am
about what is happening with our program on the last couple of slides overall what is going on in the marketplace slablt to the marketplace the california puc issued a report the majority of installations since in 2014 did not receive a state incentive yet 31 percent of those yes, sir - i'm sorry 31 percent greater than in 2013 there's been worry the marketplace was of the federal tax credit was due to expire and urban certainty where it was be extended that uncertainty is gone a thirty percent federal tax credit extended for that the next 3 empowers and the california public utilities commission was considering changes in the net
6:11 am
energy metering program that created instability the market but now this is favorable to the terms for customers installing solar this is things are staking out there so with that update i think on the go solar sf program is it so time to start a discussion on segregating h integrating this is an opportunity to give me guidance not an action item we would like to get guidance from you and take that guidance to the stakeholder and solar task force and customers of the program both clean power and go solar sf and come back with potential program changes just to get the dialogue going
6:12 am
one of your offer arching recommendation whatever changes we protect the goals of the two programs making sure we have affordable, cleaner power in san francisco that we are investing in local prongs and jobs that we continue to foster the program stability we're starting to see we recommend that since we have not changed the incentive levels since 2013 we need a step down on the incentives with the overall project costs that allows us to stretch the program budget some we're hoping to have more uptake with the cleanpowersf program and interested in making changes there we will recommend simplifying the incentive structure to you know when you saw that slide
6:13 am
that had all the columns across the top those are size you know categories if we did it like the state program was on a dollar per kilowatt basis instead of of the unit size i think we'll have a more simplified program and we propose to simplify the that current table and get hopefully get a little bit less questioning on that by customers in terms of opportunities with clean power sf we'll to go enhance the program for customers of ours both our pubically owned and the hetch hetchy customers and our cleanpowersf customers some of the ideas we batted around providing a additional incentive
6:14 am
to customers that are customers of ours to encourage their participation the program to reward them as our customers to set aside a portion of cleanpowersf budget for our committees there is dedicated funding available and to establish more attractive net metering terms for our committees than are available to customers of pg&e. >> to that's ideas to get the ball rolling and like to hear our thoughts either in reaction to those or creative ideas you have. >> thank you. >> thank you. >> commissioner courtney. >> that's very detailed and helpful for me you know forgive for saying this but go solar is the pilot program forever so i kind of just not really engaged you on
6:15 am
some of the workforce concerns but now that we're starting to talk about go solar and cleanpowersf i would like to have very robust communicates about the workforce itself, who's in the workforce, how many hours they work per week pursuant to what agreement, what wage rates with what training and certification components because i think we jason we have not yielded dealt with those issues it is a little bit premature to do that but i think now probably is the time because we can focus on those individuals right here now full disclosure martin is here there are disputes in the private sector in connection with the systems we can resolve
6:16 am
those last week any project labor agreement kind of i'll wormd but start with the current and get data i know local residents or not to begin the kind of flushing that out i have a strong superstition that people will be curious about what the job opportunities are with cleanpowersf now go solar folks don't work directly with the pg&e; right? so what would be the relationship with cleanpowersf how are those connected it seems like we're connecting them but they can be apples and oranges it is great we'll start to kind of have this confusion but probably just the tip of the iceberg. >> so make a couple of comments first of all, i think we now see
6:17 am
a connection with go solar as it relates to hetch hetchy as it relates to the power enterprise one we were concerned that western providing hetch hetchy money to be used ton solar installation of pg&e consumers but now since we have cleanpowersf visually all of them could be power provides by isn't that cleanpowersf not pg&e they can be our customers eventually be our customers unless their opt out the second thing as you stated the go solar is not customers of ours it is really a contractors who know how to do the paperwork that will get the incentives and
6:18 am
off savings to homeland security to get go solar incentives so recognizing that the third thing as it relates to cleanpowersf building its own renewables we had lafco working with us to talk about what projects we can talk about i think those are the projects that we can probably talk about you know if it is union you know what the workforce looks like and definitely talk about that and planning to bring a job report barbara you know people that have that. >> the next month. >> while bring the jobs report bans the actual numbers we'll definitely provide that but i think the main thing is that what is interesting when you
6:19 am
look at it right now you're seeing more solar installations being insult without looking at the incentives because maybe from what we're hearing it is just more efficient for sun run solar city and folks that have the workforce to deploy them without doing the paperwork is in their best interests we want to hear from you some of the features we'll present and solicit the input we'll like to have a go solar program it is rated for the cleanpowersf folks those are our customers and really had had metering where if for example, over build on their
6:20 am
solar panels so they can produce more power than can be used we can buy it back added a higher costs so it is an incentive we talked about the limitations that we're hearing also a lot of folks who are not putting solar on their roof they need a relief repair we talked about the bill finance as an option you can remove that as well so you can get you know to the - we were focused on the low - this is an opportunity to harvest more if reremove the barriers so coming back to you those opposed with open to investigate. >> so you know that's it helpful i'm focusing a lot of
6:21 am
inclusively on the workforce we've kind of been the job it hadn't had that real connection to the utility that's my original comment been the pilot program but once the workers have greater legitimacy within the organization that's when all the question marks come i hope i was clear i'm looking for data on the work and what qualifies the folks to work and are sfthsz component do those components qualify them for other things are they the career pathway or the initial thing maybe we should think about ways to have over laptop with the construction industry i know that is a whole bunch to drop on
6:22 am
you am i being clear and it's helpful input as i mentioned we're seeing the administration of the workforce component to city build and pat mulligan and his team we'll pull data if the historic practice not relevant to what we're proposing for the future we're making that shift but at least give you a flavor of the history in terms of the data points our q. >> i think there is a question on cac local build out we hadn't fully upcoming packed. >> let's do it now that's the ne freerlg. >> i think that is important on the method cast if he were to
6:23 am
purchase a local project in the end result is we will buy certainty amount of kilowatts for cost it is up to them to build it and how they build it you life e kind of losses some of the control we may want to talk about the whole thing it may change the way we contract if we want to make sure certain requirements are being met. >> other comments commissioners one thing that kauths any attendance the original legislation in 2007 amended krovrpd go solar with cac and the time enforcement we didn't have a cac and the result was
6:24 am
3,0006 hundred and 602 customers that have solar panels installed in homes that were penguin customers with the program that was run by hetch hetchy so i looked that number of people you've said as much i want those as customers they have benefited from our task and should be our customers as well we should be aggressively going after them and as go solar go forward as a route part of their signing up additional customers for that sutter program will be signing them up as customers of cleanpowersf that didn't need to be market
6:25 am
limiting not a burden i hope we could i know instead of i don't know what the percentage 5 out of 36 or 37 but clipping to one hundred. >> thank you. >> anything else commissioners public comment i have one comment card - i hope i said that right. >> good afternoon i'm with bright ryan line i want to make a question public comment on the workforce cleanpowersf the central part of program and many of the stakeholders involved i wanted to get it right from what we've heard from the partners the
6:26 am
solar industry and the cfos the workforce development program they have been things that are imperfect hopefully what we're getting with this change to the workforce program a single point of contact that is providing candidates i know that is increasing the employer assess we're excited that city build will do that but to realize the vision we need a oewd and ask puc to work with other stakeholders and continue to find ways to improve the we have a motion and a second we appreciate all the work that pat mulligan and 0 others put into this program and looking forward to it xhovz as we go forward.
6:27 am
>> mr. freed jason fried i'll directing your attention the last 3 believability points the ideas for the rewarding the complerz he fully support that i think you can 20/20 types of the bonuses a cca or smaller bonus that is signed that for the supergreen and give people more incentives for solar on the roof people are better late than never most the green attributes having them sign up for the supergreen we'll get the money for the other build outs that is an extra bonus not doing a large bonus but small bonus and give
6:28 am
them the incentive and for the second one i fully support i'll take it a step further as the program is shifted to the new workforce model i see more people wanting to use the money that is available like the early years community based after the low-hanging fruit and we had money for the incentives for the money there should be a priority for the crack customers and over the others that are staying with pg&e your prioritizing your own customers of the hetch hetchy system whether it is be po u and get to commissioner, i agree those are good numbers but as the barbara hale said maybe not know what the future is
6:29 am
sister-in-law we are switching the program over to pat mulligan and may not get the same incentives but incorporated what is changing how that is changing and what are the incentives and how it addresses the concerns that are legitimate and people are becoming unemployed so the comments are very good and with the shifting of the program it solves some of the problems maybe not all but some that existed. >> thank you. >> thank you public comment. >> good afternoon, commissioners my name is jennifer i'm the project manager at design the employment training center i've been there around for 40 years we had a apprenticeship with the construction that includes the solar installations train
6:30 am
component and go solar sf is a program we've been active in since the beginning and seen a lot of our students and our grads hired just to be clear our population as sister program build academy in a sense we're having a training our participants they're also san franciscans but they don't require all the same requirements as if i go into city build our students manltd have their ged with the program maybe driver's license they tend to have more barriers to employment than the academies but have a desire to go into the construction and fields so we've seen like i said a lot of go solar program and the workforce
6:31 am
continue to grow into the first program and we would like to see some focus on training dollars we've been doing solar training with our own resources and finally people signing them into go solar training without any specific resources from go solar sf into the train program we're not the only ones doing the training other cfos that are doing like programs so i would suggest that that be the step also how can we to our point fully train people to have the skills to be successful the solar trades so i just ask you keep in mind as you're looking at the proposals coming up
6:32 am
i'll be happy to answer any questions you may have. >> thank you. >> hello. >> thank you my name is jeanine i'm the co-founder with the design builder firm and san francisco's only solar contractor that is a certified b b e the first san francisco based on contractors to become workforce development through cleanpowersf and today to commissioner courtneys comments you know we have 50 percent of our crew leads come to us through office of economic workforce development and the first go solar back office hire that is doing during the expansion to insure that is no boats on the roof but
6:33 am
incorporated women and others to have pastoring into careers in solar melissa is now has a staff of 3 that she manages and reluctance purchased a home and re-entering we're talking about transformative employment and careers in the best scenario what we've- i'm pleased that the sfpuc is look at the workforce development xhoenlt i agree with commissioner courtney that has not on the whole seen the placement and retention that is really necessary to drive the environmental and social justice components that i think dr.
6:34 am
jackson wanted to see and expected of this program and holds them account recent to delivering the program so i'm encouraged by that i am concerned and that about replacing a mandate with good faith and while i first experienced in trying to hire through first source didn't work i'm you know have confidence in pat mulligan and confidence in laura to work with the solar employers to improve that process i welcome any comments you have. >> thank you very much any public comment on this item thank you all for your comments next item, please. >> item 11 is the bosco
6:35 am
report. >> good afternoon, commissioners initiating bosca chief executive officer i have two items to talk about today first i'll calling your attention to may february 23rd statement that is in your packet in our correspondence packet for today, i hadn't planned to give it to you but i'll not reilly repeat it but as you may know bosca monitored the mountain tunnel situation i believe we've pushed to insure that it gets the focus it needs to insure the reliability to all your water customers and to that end i'm pleased that you've heard from

january overall we see the 27 percent savings for the 15 percent cumulative savings it is down we expelled 31 percent it is hard to a safe that much water in the middle of january when the water use it low we'll seeing the numbers trickle down but a good response the ear and one way we looking at this the state has set a target volume of savings between the june 2016 and how much water to save and to date the boca agencies are achieved that by next october so this is a significant achievement and one that really is a test to the fact that the investment and the communities responses and just in total what that

7:08 am
in 2009 that legislation allows landlords to evacuate families owner move-in the families have children under the age of 18 the scald system and prohibits the eviction during the school year the current legislation expands the existing legislation to include all no fault evictions so that families with children in our system can not be evicted during the school year for evictions related to condominium conversion and substantial rehabilitation the second thing it includes educator and we define educators as people that work in san francisco continentals directing with students and home daycare's both public and private
7:09 am
this not only includes the teacher a classroom a paraprofessional an administrator a psychologist or security guard or liaison a cafe worker janitor or school nurse we know that san francisco is facing an affordability crisis if this affordability crisis that impacts our education in terms of the crisis in housing the san francisco retirement board provided the data that shows that there were 2000 notices of eviction filed between be marking 2014 and 2015 this is a significance 55 increase compared to the 5 year period before that wrpts with regards to no fault 4 hundred and 38 vibrations were
7:10 am
on record if you ask the advocates the number will probable be do you believe that number the impact on families with children raises concerns many families who are veektsdz can't afford to stay in san francisco and therefore are forced to leave san francisco but not just the families themselves from the family is evicted the impact can be felt if an educator is evicted not only of that educator and his or her family by the students that are educated by his or her that's why this legislation make sense and to put it into context of what it means to a school worker let's look at the salary for a full kre7b89d teacher is less than 3 thousand 4 hundred conflict of interests a month that teacher has to if they want
7:11 am
to stay in san francisco facing an eviction they have to deal with the market where a one bedroom apartment the medium rental prices for the one bedroom apartment is 3 thousand 6 hundred and 20 more than the entire money they make within a month the issue is worse foyer a paraprofessional here in san francisco a paraprofessional their average salary is $2,083 a month imagine living on that when you have to pay 3 thousand plus for a one bedroom a december 2015 professional survey by the educators of san francisco that represents payrolls and teachers found that 70 percent of all responded to that survey and 59 percent were concerned with the high cost of living in san francisco this is impacting the educators
7:12 am

7:43 am
>> i want to welcome everyone here today and today, we are signing this very important piece of legislation and let me begin by thanking supervisor wiener so far his instead of leadership the sponsoring the legislation that will raise the minimum angle for anyone purchasing tobacco products and e cigarettes to the average 24 and that will take effect on
7:44 am
july 1st of this year i know that supervisor wiener along with his co-sponsors supervisor mar and supervisor cowen and supervisor farrell and ultimately the entire board had a adopted this and this i know that the supervisors with working closely with our duty 0 who has been documenting why it is showing so important to continue our efforts as a city if not as a state to continue be rooiktd the access to cigarettes particularly at journeying or younger ages that is advocated by the groups like the tobacco free coalition i want to thank them they're not just here in san francisco but the entire region and all over the country working with the health department making sure that
7:45 am
supervisor wiener and not only pay attention it the science and data it is going on but that we do our best to end the suffering that is brought by by long-term smoking that obviously is the cause of cancer and asthma and heart disease we do our best to educate the public in doing so if not the industry that sells overseeing products and ultimate our kids are your family when in their 18 and 19 is shown that the coalition has shown over and over you're putting that some 95 percent of long term smokers had begun smoking at the age of 18 perhaps younger and as certain under the age of 21 those habit are so hard to end voluntarily
7:46 am
so that's why we have to go to many other front to try to do this and that's why i think that the supervisor wiener has found a person cause and public health health cause if the violation kriebs the department of health to make sure that we do what we can to end our these diseases as much as we can to make sure that we also reflect as the mayor of the city if we can save a lot of money if we are able the medical systems we have to have in place it treat cancer and asthma with smoking is an incredible experience to the public safety the cleaner air with the coalition work on families that
7:47 am
second-hand smoke impacts this has another critical reason why we want to do as much as we can and i think we're on the overview we know that supervisor wiener is already in contact with the governor's office as we are and with his the 1184 particularly senator leno and senator henry's to insure that the state which maybe hopefully in our minds the second to join hawaii to end the sales of tobacco products and less people under 9 age of 21 it doesn't make it right because your 21 you buy tobacco products wild to end it. everyone hopefully with the adult level of age 21 that people make better health decision tore themselves and
7:48 am
their family so i take this opportunity to thank the coalition i know that in looking at the data as they have done in working with us this year was a strong sense interest the data it the smoking rates are higher amongst people of closer and amongst the let the record reflect community and other xhucht we rank it with a hard impact sales work that is done by tobacco industry the may or may not lgbt community that's where we really have good data to show that the more we do to educate your communities be about this the better off we'll be so with all that background i want to say to supervisor wiener you have again showing the good leadership i'm going to give the pen avenue we sign this your
7:49 am
accumulate more pens than anyone but thank you for your leadership and also working with such important groups like the tobacco free coalition supervisor wiener i'd like to invite you up here to say a few words >> thank you, mayor ed lee i'll give that pen to the advocates and the district for they're really horroric work tutor sing a song full of the hope that the present has brought us; 24 legislation in a way that highlights this critically important issue san francisco for many years has been on the cutting-edge of public safety whether around hiv or led pant and sugar sweetened beverage whatever the case weave been from the forefront and once again we are in the fire hydrant
7:50 am
of what i hope will be a tile waive of proving health legislation that eliminates tobacco use in this country this is a huge problem we've been involved in a 50-year struggle but with the tobacco city that produces a product with no benefit whatsoever that kills a half a million people every year 34 is a serious issue and serious punting kiss i'm proud we live in a city where we can be on the cutting-edge where the politics of this city allows us at city hall to make good progressive policy i also want to say we know we're up against a very well financed component the tobacco destroy
7:51 am
for decades has fought ever effort to try to control tobacco use and enemy linkage between their pursuit and the health we know that hillsborough tried to do that they have spent their legislation after an expensive lawsuit by the tobacco industry we in san francisco are willing to fight that fight that is amount about our city thank you to the department of public health we sometimes don't roles e releases how lucky with the best putting department that supports our efforts to make good laws that vascular critical exercise an amazing agency and our advocates for give us the political spouse space to to be able to do this and as the mayor
7:52 am
adu u. >> you allowed we passed that legislation a week and a half good and the law jam the state assembly broke we that republicans willing to raise the tobacco age to 21 to pass senator leno's forward-looking bill to make sure that cigarettes are tobacco are still a way to get addicted to nicotine and will you the tobacco tax it is a huge step forward i hope goes to the governors desk thank you, everyone (clapping.) so are we ready to safe so far lives i'll add one mount reason not in my notes or the legislation but it is about my history
