The City of Davis and Yolo County have both voted to take steps towards creating a Community Choice Aggregation program. This program would give residents the choice of cleaner energy sources at lower prices, beginning in less than two years.
“The goal is lofty: to provide more renewable energy, decrease greenhouse gas emissions, and give residents a break on their electricity bills.
No doubt, there are pitfalls. But community choice energy is worth whatever risk there might be.
Given the number of solar farms in our Valley – and the many more coming – our public officials should examine community choice programs throughout California and determine if they would benefit residents here.”
