VICTORY: No vote on A.B. 2145
Community Choice energy programs empower local communities to take control of decision-making about the sources and cost of their electrical power. Not-for-profit, democratically controlled Community Choice energy programs enable local governments to reduce greenhouse gas emissions while creating green jobs and stimulating the local economy. These programs are dedicated to reducing consumer electricity demand, providing competitive electricity rates and maximizing the amount of renewable energy in their mix.
PG&E introduced A.B. 2145, a bill designed to destroy Community Choice energy programs in California. The bill would place arbitrary geographic limitations on Community Choice programs and impose a complex and unnecessary bureaucratic complaint process. Thanks in part to 28,353 CREDO members, the legislative session ended without a vote on A.B. 2145.
