Solana Beach, California has requested proposals for a Community Choice Energy program to serve its 7,800 electric customers. The city is searching for a company that will develop, finance, and implement a 100% clean energy program.
“The city released a technical analysis of the idea in April, completed at no cost by the company California Clean Power, which provides consulting and financing for community choice programs. Responses to the request for proposals are due by Aug. 11.
About 33 percent of the electricity provide by SDG&E is from renewable sources, the public utility company says. A community choice alternative could provide up to 100 percent renewable energy at a cost that competes with SDG&E rates.”
