    How Community Choice Energy works.
    How Community Choice Energy works.
    slideshow
    Now that Mayor Kevin Faulconer has sanctioned forming a new joint-powers entity to purchase electrical power to achieve 100 percent renewable energy citywide by 2035, the question becomes: How will that be implemented, and what are the risks? After three years of research and analysis, Faulconer selected Community Choice Aggregation (CCA) as the preferred pathway to reach the 100 percent renewable energy goal in the City’s landmark Climate Action Plan. The proposed new CCA entity, which must first be approved by the City Council, is expected to create healthy competition benefiting San Diegans. Forming a new CCA entity is expected to lower energy costs by 5 percent or more for ratepayers, plus help the City reach its renewable energy goal by 2035 – a decade ahead of the state’s goal. “I want San Diego to lead this region into a cleaner future,” Faulconer said. “This gives consumers a real choice, lowers energy costs for all San Diegans, and keeps our city on the cutting edge of environmental protection. We are a city where our environment is central to our quality of life and Community Choice will ensure we leave behind a better and cleaner San Diego than the one we inherited. What is Community Choice Energy? Community Choice Energy or Community Choice Aggregation (CCA) envisions bringing local control and freedom of choice and competition into the electricity marketplace. Currently, San Diego has only one electricity provider, San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E).  Community Choice allows cities and counties to purchase power on behalf of their residents and businesses to provide cleaner power options at a competitive price. Under community choice, SDG&E would continue to deliver the power over their power lines, provide customer service and handle the billing.   A local community choice program is designed to offer a choice of providers to create competition encouraging innovation and improved pricing. But not everyone is sold on CCAs, like the Clear the Air Coalition, a group of business, environmental and taxpayer leaders, who advocate a cautious approach to changing San Diego’s existing electrical power distribution system.  Contacted by Beach & Bay Press, SDG&E spokesperson Tony Manolatos referenced the following story “San Diego Should Carefully Weigh the Costs and Benefits of Government-Controlled Energy” published at clearair.us, which he said “covers all the main points.” “The City of San Diego should carefully weigh the costs and benefits of government-controlled energy before flipping the switch and moving residents and businesses into such a program,” states the story. “If the city decides to form a CCA, would it actually help San Diego reach its clean air goals faster and cheaper than current state laws require? … To date, CCAs have been reluctant to purchase long-term contracts for renewable energy, or build new facilities. As a result, CCAs mostly buy and sell existing green energy, a practice that does not create new local jobs or clean our air any faster. … The evidence indicates a San Diego CCA would not meet the city’s goal of 100 percent clean energy by 2035, or create many new jobs, but it would create risk for taxpayers, who are ultimately the backstop of any government-controlled energy program.” Community choice proponent Tyson Siegele represents But It Just Might work.com, a clean energy advocacy group. Noting SDG&E under law is, “not allowed to oppose community choice energy,” Siegele pointed out SDG&E’s parent company, Sempra, “is not a regulated utility” and therefore is allowed to oppose community choice. Nonetheless, Siegele noted that, “In theory, SDG&E shouldn’t lose any money if community choice happens, or doesn’t.” But Siegele was quick to point out San Diego pays some of the highest per-kilowat per-unit rates for electricity in the state adding, “Californians have, on average, a 50 percent higher electricity cost than the nationwide average.” Argued Siegele, “We’ve had a massive ramp-up in the number of community choice energy programs in the past five years statewide. It just makes sense to give our communities more control over where their energy comes from, and what it costs.” But even if successful, a transition to community choice by San Diego will take some time, said Siegele. “In all likelihood, the entire process will take a little more than two years, and the shortest time it could be effect would be January of 2021,” he said.   Community Choice Energy Timeline December 2018: Resolution of intent available for docketing at City Council. Spring 2019: Begin formal meetings with potential JPA partners to negotiate structure and guiding principles. Summer 2019: City Council action to officially form new JPA. Fall 2019: JPA begins hiring staff, including CEO and CFO. Staff develops implementation plan for submittal to CPUC. 2020: JPA continues to establish operations. CPUC approval expected. 2021: CCA begins service to customers with phased-in approach throughout the year.

    Pacific Beach banner program Discover PB is offering merchants an opportunity to advertise their businesses and beautify the community at the same time via banners. Banners will be placed in high-traffic corridors on Garnet Avenue, Mission Boulevard and other prime locations throughout the beach community.  “The PB banner program is a community beautification program with the intent of promoting local businesses, events and community gatherings of general public interest on the streets and public rights-of -way,” said Sara Berns, Discover PB’s executive director. “It is also a way to promote neighborhood pride and identity.” Banners costing $350 include a business logo on the merchant’s choice of a Shop, Play, Eat or Farmers' Market banner to promote shopping small while encouraging tourists and locals alike to shop, eat and stay local.  Banner sponsorships are open to all PB small businesses and local organizations. Proceeds from banner sales will go directly back to neighborhoods, helping to fund ongoing community improvements. “We also have a renewal discount for anyone renewing their banner from last year,” said Berns. Día de los Muertos at Old Town In honor of one of Mexico’s most vibrant holidays, Old Town icons Bazaar del Mundo and Casa Guadalajara will team up to celebrate Día de los Muertos, Thursday through Saturday, Nov. 1-3. The entrance to Casa Guadalajara will become a marketplace of artisans and merchandise from Bazaar del Mundo, face painting, and a life-size Catrina sitting in an Instagrammable 1800s carriage. Throughout the weekend, performances from lively Ballet Folklorico dancers and Casa Guadalajara’s world-class Mariachi band – all in painted skeleton faces – plus Chinelos dancers, will take place. Popular in Mexico but rarely seen in the United States, Chinelos dancers dress in vibrant, traditional costumes designed to mock Europeans and European mannerisms from the colonial period to the end of the 19th century.   Arrest made in in the Point Loma Heights homicide On Tuesday, Oct. 9, at about 11:42 p.m., the San Diego Police Department Communication Center received a 911 call regarding a person in the parking lot of 4013 W. Point Loma Blvd, who had been shot. The first police units to arrive found a black female with a gunshot wound to the upper body. Paramedics arrived and transported the victim to a local hospital. Unfortunately, the victim was pronounced dead at the hospital. The preliminary investigation revealed that the victim and the suspect were standing next to a vehicle inside the parking lot at 4013 W. Point Loma Blvd. talking. At some point the two began to argue and one gunshot was heard. The victim was seen laying on the ground in the parking lot and a dark sedan was seen leaving the area at a high rate of speed east on W. Point Loma Blvd. The suspect was described as a black male in his mid to late 30s wearing dark clothing. The victim has been identified as 20-year old Octavia Williams from Phoenix. San Diego Police Department Homicide Detectives determined that 41-year old Joe Bennette Conway shot the victim and then fled the area before police arrived. A warrant was issued for Conway’s arrest for murder. On Oct. 30, Conway was located and arrested in Tempe, Ariz. with the help of the Phoenix Police Department. Conway is being held pending extradition for the murder of Williams. Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to call the Homicide Unit at 619-531-2293 or Crime Stoppers at 888-580-8477. Hookah lounge stabber sentenced to 4 years A man who stabbed an employee of a Pacific Beach hookah lounge was sentenced on Oct. 23 to four years in state prison. Simone Myjel Carter, 26, was given credit for already serving 93 days in jail by San Diego Superior Court Judge Polly Shamoon, which includes good conduct credits. No restitution was ordered for the Sept. 6 incident at the Pharaoh Hookah Lounge at 976 Garnet Ave. A 21-year-old employee was injured at 11:40 p.m. when he tried to eject Carter after he caused some problems in the lounge. Carter pulled a knife and stabbed the employee twice. The worker was taken to a hospital but the injuries were not life threatening. Shamoon denied probation and imposed four years in prison which Carter had agreed to accept when he pleaded guilty Sept. 20 to assault with a deadly weapon. The maximum sentence was eight years. Other charges were dismissed including two assault counts of a woman and another man and vandalism. Arrest made in Midway District homicide On Oct. 29 at 1:45 p.m., the San Diego Police Department Communication Center received a 911 call regarding a subject who was injured and possibly deceased inside the X-Spot adult bookstore located at 3600 Midway Drive. Fire personnel arrived on scene and found a 65-year-old white female with trauma to her upper body who was deceased. Fire personnel exited the business and police officers entered the location to ensure no one else was inside. San Diego Police homicide detectives were called to the scene to investigate the incident. Based on information developed during their investigation, 39-year-old Shaun Ward was identified as the suspect. Ward was arrested in the City of San Diego on Oct. 29 and was booked into jail for the murder. He is scheduled to be arraigned on Nov. 1 at 1:30 p.m. The victim was identified as 65- year-old Diane Spagnuolo of El Cajon. Dogs from Florida now available for adoption Some of the dogs transferred to San Diego from shelters in Florida are ready to find loving homes. On Oct. 18, 93 dogs were flown to San Diego to create space at shelters in the Florida Panhandle for animals who have been displaced by Hurricane Michael. The Florida dogs are available for adoption at San Diego Humane Society’s San Diego Campus (5500 Gaines St.). These pets are not direct victims of Hurricane Michael. They are dogs who were transported to San Diego to create room for pets who have been lost, strayed or abandoned due to the hurricane. These pets do not have owners who will be searching for them when the conditions improve. All of the dogs will be spayed/neutered, current on vaccinations and microchipped. The available dogs can be found at sdhumane.org/pet and can be identified by the tag “#hm.” Adoptions are on a first-come, first-served basis. Drop-off locations open for mail ballot voters Mail-ballot voters have options when it comes to turning in their ballots for the Nov. 6 Gubernatorial General Election. They can send in their ballot by mail, drop it off at the Registrar of Voters Office in Kearny Mesa or drop it off at any one of 59 additional sites (including the Pacific Beach Library on Cass Street) throughout the county before Election Day. The drop-off sites will be open during each location’s regular business hours from Monday, Oct. 29 through Election Day. The high number of contests in the Nov. 6 election means San Diego County voters will be getting a two-card ballot, with races listed on the front and back of each card. The quicker that ballots are returned to the Registrar’s Office, the quicker they can be prepared for counting Election Night, saving time and taxpayer dollars. Fall Fest at Belmont Park Belmont Park’s Fall Fest continues during November, Fridays through Sundays, 5 p.m. to close. In the spirit of giving, Belmont Park has partnered with the San Diego Food Bank by hosting a free-ride food drive with a donation of five canned food items Fridays through Sundays, 5 p.m. to close. On Saturday nights in November, guests (18 and older) may sign up to compete in free pie eating contests to win a family four-pack of combo wristbands.

    With the goal of enhancing and preserving San Diego’s regional parks for generations to come, Mayor Kevin L. Faulconer was joined on Oct. 31 by Councilmember Lori Zapf and park advocates to announce more than $40 million in infrastructure investments for Mission Bay Park over the next six years for environmental protection and infrastructure projects, including new and improved playgrounds, comfort stations and other public amenities. Projects include: - Bay dredging – More than $10 million has been spent to restore navigational safety to the bay. Mitigation, which is now complete and in the monitoring phase, was ranked as the top infrastructure priority for Mission Bay Park. - Parking lots – More than $5 million for parking lot resurfacing at Crown Point North, De Anza North, De Anza South, Dog Beach, North Cove, Old Sea World Drive, Santa Clara, Dusty Rhodes, Hospitality Point, Mission Point, Ocean Beach Dog Beach Walkway, Quivira Road, Playa Pacifica North, Robb Field, Rose Marie Starns South Shores, Sunset Point, Tecolote North and Tecolote South. - Playgrounds – Nearly $8 million to replace playground equipment at Bonita Cove West, Crown Point, Santa Clara, Tecolote North, Tecolote South, Bonita Cove East, Dusty Rhodes, Mission Point, Playa Pacifica and Robb Field. - Comfort stations – More than $7 million to replace and upgrade comfort stations at Bonita Cove West, El Carmel, Mission Bay Athletic Area, North Cove, Santa Clara, Tecolote North, Tecolote South, Bonita Cove East, Dusty Rhodes, Hospitality Point, Mission Point, Playa Pacifica, Robb Field, Sunset Point and Ventura. - Fitness and recreation facilities – More than $3 million to replace and upgrade the adult fitness course on East Mission Bay and the recreation center at Robb Field. “Mission Bay Park is getting the investment of a century with a wave of voter-approved funding,” said Zapf. “From dredging, lighting, comfort stations, bike and walking paths and new playgrounds, Mission Bay Park will better serve San Diegans and visitors.” The Mission Bay Park Committee advises the Park and Recreation Board on the development and operation of Mission Bay Park. The committee also acts as the Mission Bay Park Improvement Fund Oversight Committee and is responsible for overseeing permanent capital improvements and deferred maintenance of facilities within park boundaries. “My committee and I were ecstatic that the voters of our city overwhelmingly approved Measure J,” said Mission Bay Park Committee chairman Paul Robinson. “This will permit the City, with our oversight, to continue to invest millions of dollars in Mission Bay.” Long-term investments also include $7 million for a master environmental report to streamline construction and guide the City on the environmental impacts of proposed projects, including wetland expansion and water quality improvements for Rose Creek, North Fiesta Island, Tecolote Creek and Cudahy Creek. It will also include the restoration of failing shorelines, San Diego River Trail improvements, and the expansion of preserves and habitats for endangered species within the Mission Bay Park Improvement Zone. “Mission Bay Park is one of San Diego’s most popular destinations to both residents and visitors alike, and we are excited to see the tremendous amount of investment in the upkeep and improvement of the park,” said Herman Parker, director of the City’s Parks and Recreation Department. “The planned upgrades in infrastructure, playgrounds and facilities will ensure one of the nation’s largest water parks continues to be a source of enjoyment today and for future generations.” In November 2016, voters approved Measure J to extend 2008’s Proposition C – co-authored by then Councilmember Faulconer – to direct a portion of Mission Bay lease revenue toward capital investments in Mission Bay Park and regional parks for an additional 30 years. An estimated $1.5 billion will be generated through 2069. “Our regional parks are among San Diego’s most valuable assets and the significant investments we’re making to Mission Bay Park will ensure it is preserved and enhanced for future generations to enjoy,” Faulconer said. “This continues the largest park investment effort San Diego has seen in modern history as we’ve opened dozens of new or improved parks in neighborhoods across the city over the past few years.” Mission Bay Park is the largest aquatic park of its kind in the country, consisting of more than 4,000 acres of parkland and 27 miles of shoreline. About 15 million people visit the park annually.

    Pacific Beach planners discuss newly proposed scooter regs, suggest more

    A round-robin discussion of the ubiquitous electric scooters headlined Pacific Beach Planning Group’s October meeting. Community planners vetting the issue on Oct. 24 followed unanimous approval that day of a City Council committee’s endorsement of Mayor Kevin Faulconer’s proposed new regulations of dockless scooters. PBPG board member Eve Anderson and community activist Marcie Beckett presented numerous proposed additions to the mayor’s framework. “Scooter companies are using our infrastructure and not paying for anything,” contended Beckett, who’s been documenting widespread law violations by local scooter riders. “Each scooter should have a license plate, and riders should be required to scan their driver’s license each time they ride to prevent use by underage riders” (Bird scooter riders are required to scan their driver’s licenses). Becket issued a handout with a laundry list of suggestions for new scooter regulations that included: cost-recovery fees from companies to provide law enforcement; company fees for bike/scooter lane development and maintenance; citations and fines for adults unlocking scooters for underage riders; and citations/fines for scooter companies whose vehicles block ADA ramps, sidewalks, businesses or private property. Group chair Henish Pulickal said other cities have employed high-tech to control scooters. “If you don’t park it in designated areas, it won’t turn off,” he said. “It keeps running.” “We need to limit the number of scooters in any community,” Anderson added.  “Proper parking for these is a big sore point,” said board member RJ Kunysz. “What we actually need is a per-mile use fee for each vehicle accessed,” said board member Jason Legros. “That is the only way we can keep up with the impact of scooters.” “The mayor’s framework is a first step,” said board member Karl Rand. “Tracking them needs to be refined,” added board member Jim Morrison. Board colleague Ed Gallagher noted, “[Scooters] should be able to slow down. The technology is there. [Dockless] bikes also shouldn’t be left on the sidewalk at night to get knocked over.” Audience member Chris Brewster gave a hotline number, 866-205-2442, people can call to get scooters fetched from in front of their properties. Board member Kristin Victor suggested scooter regulations ought to be part of a broader discussion of transportation safety to include bicycles and cars. In other action SDMTS transportation planner Peter Casellini updated the group on a feeder bus study underway for the Mid-Coast light rail extension from Old Town to University City serving nine new stations, including Pacific Beach/Clairemont. Casellini fielded numerous questions from board members and residents. MTS is developing a plan for adjusting bus service to better serve the new Trolley extension. Mid-Coast Trolley construction began in fall 2016 and service is anticipated to begin in 2021. Casselini said SDMTS is hosting regional workshops on the future Mid-Coast interconnection between buses and trolley. A workshop was held Oct. 29 at PB Rec Center.
