PASADENA 100 RALLY
The Pasadena Group mobilized to represent the Sierra Club at this rally to celebrate the collection of more than 1,100 postcards from Pasadena residents with the message: “I care about climate change and I want Pasadena to be powered by 100% carbon-free energy by 2030.” PASADENA 100 is a coalition of 21 local non-profit, non-partisan organizations.

AVOID GRID BLACK OUTS WITH SWELL ENERGY’S BLACK FRIDAY OFFER
Extreme weather events, due to climate change, are increasingly straining the aging and overburdened electric grid. As high electricity demand continues to stress the grid, the need for Flex Alerts, which call for consumers to voluntarily conserve electricity to prevent blackouts, increases. Our aging infrastructure needs our help. A resilient energy grid powered by renewables can help offset rising energy costs and ensure your lights stay on when the power goes off.
