Electricity Storage and Community Choice
The August 8, SDED Workshop, "Electricity Storage in the Context of Community Choice: A Huge Opportunity for Impact" was a big success!
San Diego customers are handicapped by some of the highest energy costs in the continental US. Today's regulated, monopoly Investor-Owned Utilities (IOUs) are slow to respond to more affordable, clean energy choices and to the imperatives of the climate crisis.
These costs and delays are imposed on customers of all sizes. High rates, demand charges, rate increases, more demand charges. And lost opportunities -- to self-generate, add storage, develop more reliable and controllable micro- and nano-grids, while realizing a fair return on invested capital.
Technologies now support these solutions. IOUs do not.
Community Electricity Choice provides an alternative. Marin Clean Energy and Sonoma Clean Power proved the concept. Lancaster Choice Energy, San Francisco, and San Mateo have compounded the proof. Why not San Diego?
It's time to accelerate progress toward a new energy future. Let's make every kWh emission-free. Join us!
