Thanks to the tireless efforts of SLO Clean Energy, the Board of Supervisors will be considering an item on the agenda for its October 6 meeting to start moving in the direction of exploring Community Choice Energy (also known as Community Choice Aggregation) as an option in our county.
Ventura and Santa Barbara Counties are moving forward with a feasibility study and invited SLO County to join in at a cost of $50,000 (saving the County from a $100,000 price tag to do one on its own). SLO County has also been invited by the City of SLO to participate in an inter-jurisdictional pre-feasibility study for a Community Choice program within the County of San Luis Obispo. This pre-feasibility study is offered at no cost by California Clean Power and Community Choice Partners and includes analysis of regional energy usage data from PG&E. The City of Paso Robles has expressed interest in participating in the pre-feasibility study.
WE NEED YOUR VOICE! If you can, please plan to attend this meeting on Tuesday, October 6 at the County Government Center in San Luis Obispo to show your support for this important goal. A link to the agenda is provided and the Supervisors will take up the issue sometime between 9 am and noon. Marin and Sonoma Counties have already switched to Community Choice and have never looked back.
