As reported by The Coast News Group, Solana Beach “moved one step closer to increasing its use of renewable energy after council members at the May 11 meeting took several actions in response to a Community Choice Aggregation, or CCA, technical analysis report.
“They agreed to send the item to the Climate Action Commission for input and have staff prepare a draft request for proposals to find a partner that can gather data, provide the necessary renewable energy and address economic concerns.
“They also directed staff to provide options with how a joint powers authority, or JPA, and private partnership model would work, including potential regional collative efforts and how a transition from a public-private partnership to a JPA would work.”
The article notes that Solana Beach would likely not form its own JPA, and “would likely form a JPA with nearby cities such as Encinitas, Del Mar, Carlsbad and Oceanside that are all meeting to discuss CCAs.” Read more from The Coast News Group here.
