Over its ten year history San Francisco Community has received funding from a number of government entities, foundations, and private citizens. We were launched with a $1.5 million grant from the San Francisco Department of the Environment, and, early-on, received hundreds of $5 to $20 donations from Bayview-Hunters Point and Potrero Hill residents. Over the last several years the bulk of our support has come from the San Francisco Public Utility Commission - to implement a state-funded toilet replacement program - and the California Public Utility Commission (CPUC). In response to SF Power's advocacy, the CPUC order Pacific Gas and Electric Company to fund a pilot program enabling small commercial energy users to participate in a demand-response program, which pays them to reduce their electricity use on short notice. Today, this pilot has morphed into a successful stand-alone initiative, and is close to paying for itself.
