The City of Encinitas voted to establishe Community Choice Energy (CCE)!
Community Choice Energy (CCE) allows cities and counties to purchase power on behalf of their residents to provide cleaner energy options and set rates at a competitive or lower price, while the existing utility company continues to deliver power over their power lines.
Community Choice Energy is the most beneficial and cost-effective way to reach clean energy goals. It is a tried and true program widely adopted throughout California and a win for families, the economy and the environment. The climate and ocean are inseparable: changes to one impacts the other. This is why as ocean advocates we must fight for clean energy and strong climate policy. To learn more about CCE (or also known as Community Choice Aggregation) go here.
Our chapter maintains two volunteer-led committees dedicated to issues related to the preservation of our coast. You can learn more about them by clicking below, or start HERE to get some background on Surfrider’s Coastal Preservation Initiative
