When 97 percent of all climate scientists agree that climate change is real and caused at least partly by humans (climate.nasa.gov/scientific-consensus), assertions to the contrary like those by Bill Stoops (in last week’s Solana Beach Sun) are a distraction.
Community Choice Energy (aka Community Choice Aggregation or CCA), also attacked by Mr. Stoops, will allow Solana Beach’s residents and businesses to choose an energy supplier other than SDG&E. Solana Beach will join the eight other CCA’s throughout California that deliver lower-priced electricity, and a greater proportion of renewable energy. For those who wish to stay with SDG&E, they can stay. For those who like the idea of competition, choice, lower rates, and reduced fossil fuel emissions, this opportunity is heaven-sent.
