- On Thursday April 14 Pauline Seales interviewed Heidi Harmon, Senior Public Affairs Director, Let’s Green CA! And former Mayor of San Luis Obbispo.
Heidi described her current role at Let’s Green Ca promoting the Romero Bill SB1230. This bill will cut greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, reduce toxic air pollution, bolster energy resilience, and support green jobs by promoting a faster and more equitable transition to zero emission vehicles (ZEV) in California. The bill simplifies and streamlines the process of applying for, receiving, and using state incentives for ZEVs, including
allowing for their use at the point-of-sale to meet the needs of low- and moderate-income consumers. Additionally, the bill calls for increased construction of ZEV infrastructure, establishes goals for charging projects in disadvantaged and low-income communities, and gives preference to installations that
minimize new demand on the state electric system, such as those powered by on-site photovoltaic solar and battery storage.
They also discussed Heidi’s term as Mayor of SLO. As an elected mayor with a 5 year term she was able to establish SLO as the most ambitious greenest city in the USA at that time.
