The Monopoly Power Grab.
AB 2145 defused!
Now Help Kill The Bill Entirely!
California State Assembly Member Steven Bradford (ex SCE Public Affairs Officer) submits AB 2145 to gut Community Choice Energy in California. A single change to existing law with a single purpose: to destroy Community Energy formation and protect forever the California Electric Monopoly (SDG&E, SCE & PG&E). Act Now! Donate $5 (or more). Sign the Petition Now.
Through the efforts of opponents throughout California, the bill no longer contains the "Opt In" provision. However, it continues to contain numerous limitations and impediments unfairly targeting Community Choice Energy law.
Navigate to the No2145.org Web Site for full details on how to keep the pressure up to kill AB 2145.
Maplight lists Bradford as the #1 Assembly recipient of contributions from the utility sector in 2011 and 2012.
A bill to enhance CCA formation was effectively killed by the IOUs. The bill (Ammiano/AB2159) would add flexibility to the creation of a CCA. And, it would have lifted the limitation that an energy generator can only serve two adjacent properties. SDG&E wrote a letter of opposition. Be sure and follow the link to see the kind of misdirection used by Sempra Utilities to kill a useful bill to promote electrical competition and assist CCA formation.

What if there were TWO light switches on your wall. One switch to get power from a corporate monopoly, the other from a community-owned, public energy district (CCA). What if that other switch moved rapidly to renewable energy, created real competition, added real quality jobs, and boosted the local economy. What if that other switch created a greener energy grid, reduced our carbon footprint and helped lessen the effects of global warming. That other switch is the San Diego Energy District, the real alternative to business as usual.
It’s time to make the switch to a brighter tomorrow. Find out how to turn on the Juice.
