The Chamber’s Energy and Water Committee approved a draft letter on September 7th detailing the Chamber’s position on Community Choice Aggregation. That letter was approved with a small addition at the Chamber Public Policy Committee meeting on September 12th. Lastly, the letter was approved by the Chamber Board of Directors on September 28th and will be sent to Mayor Kevin Faulconer.
The City of San Diego released a feasibility study on Community Choice Aggregation as an option to help the city increase the percentage of renewable energy on the grid. Achieving 100 percent renewable energy by 2035 was a key component of the city’s landmark Climate Action Plan, which was supported by the Chamber. To supplement the several perspectives being heard at the Chamber Energy and Water Committee on the topic, the Chamber hosted two workshops in August that were open to the public.
