Solar Prop B cash backers are unions, not environmentalists

~
David Zahniser gave opponents of solar Prop B more credibility this morning, when he reported the stunning extent to which the City's electrical union has backed the plan.
The campaign for a new solar energy ballot measure in Los Angeles has raised more than $267,000, nearly two-thirds of it from groups affiliated with the union that represents Department of Water and Power employees, according to a report released Wednesday.
Not the kind of environmental backing you like to see at the top of such a fundraising list. Valley activist and Daily News editor emeritus Ron Kaye calls Prop B "a blank check for City Hall corruption that will send rates soaring, create more jobs in China than L.A. and lead to less solar energy than promised."

B will b on the March 3 City ballot.
