SAN FRANCISCO - San Francisco voters will decide a public power ballot measure next month that could make California's fourth-largest city the first in the nation to require that all of its electricity come from renewable energy.

Proposition H - dubbed the San Francisco Clean Energy Act by supporters and the Blank Check by opponents - would give the city's Board of Supervisors the authority to issue billions in revenue bonds to take over Pacific Gas and Electric Co.'s electricity distribution system if the board determines that it's in the public interest after a study by the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission.
