Big boost for consumer energy choice

The Board of Supervisors voted unanimously this week to spend $10 million to set up an alternative energy source for Southern California Edison customers in unincorporated areas of Los Angeles County. Supervisor Sheila Kuehl recommended setting up the nonprofit entity under a state law allowing Community Choice Aggregation. Kuehl credited former Supervisor Don Knabe as a champion of the effort, saying work toward a CCA had been underway for about two years. Lancaster is among the nation’s leaders in community aggregation with its Lancaster Choice Energy program.
