Does it make sense for San Diego to start a government-controlled energy program? We believe City Hall should stick to the basics for now — caring for our homeless population, repairing our roads and maintaining our parks and libraries.
Some people want to move San Diego into the energy business because of the perceived environmental benefits. Our coalition, Clear the Air, is urging them to hold off on making a billion-dollar decision until we know what the costs, risks and benefits are of a government-controlled energy program, also known as community choice aggregation or CCA.
