I get the feeling I can't ask this question on this website. I seem to get the same sort of responses that suggest if you can't be 100% clean/sustainable, then there's no point in aiming for 70%.

If you can't answer the topic, then don't bother posting on this thread and debating the issue of sustainability.

Alameda has it's own Energy Company, it's own Police force which gives out local tickets that don't go back to the DMV sometimes. But it is OLD and the buildings are beautiful but not much construction, at least no new apartments. They make money from renting out the old naval air station warehouses. They have Ferry as alternative transportation to the city.

Thanks for the replies, this helps.

Money is an issue for me at the moment since I haven't had a consistent full time job in 3 years, in which time I've been living off savings. When I do work, I save a lot of money.

The main expense I am concerned with is rent, I could afford up to 600/month once I get a job. I don't mind sharing a small apt, I've done the craigslist roommate deal twice last year with good success. Other than that, factoring in I won't own a car, and I spend very wisely, I can stretch a low income a lot further than most people.
