Tyrone Jue is the Senior Advisor on the Environment to San Francisco Mayor Edwin M. Lee. His responsibilities include advising the Mayor on and advancing key climate, conservation, water, park and energy policies.
He has thirteen years of experience working on these issues for the City and County of San Francisco. In 2008, he was involved in launching San Francisco’s first solar incentive program, GoSolarSF. This program, to-date, has helped install more than 31.5 MW of solar in the city and create 172 new jobs for disadvantaged San Franciscans.
In 2016, he worked on the development and implementation of the San Francisco’s community choice energy program, CleanPowerSF. This program, also known as Community Choice Aggregation in California, allows cities to partner with their investor-owned utility to deliver cleaner energy to their residents and businesses. CleanPowerSF is a important component of San Francisco’s plan to achieve a 100% renewable electricity supply and to create new local jobs and distributed energy and storage projects.
