    How Community Choice Energy works.
    How Community Choice Energy works.

    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.

    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.

    La Jolla photog’s capture captivates Space X executives

    If one in San Diego is on social media, odds are that they have seen one of La Jolla-based photographer Evgeny Yorobe’s captivating photos. He is well-known for capturing natural phenomena in the area, though, as he so eloquently puts it, “putting yourself out there.” Recently, one of Yorobe’s captures of the other-worldly Space X Falcon launch above the clouds of Hospitals Reef eventually ended up in the abode of the man behind the rocket itself, Elon Musk. Like many fortunate events, it is one that almost never came to fruition. Following two 12-hour days of setting up, breaking down, selling prints and shaking hands at the La Jolla Art and Wine Festival, a weary Yorobe psyched himself up to make it just in time. “It had been cloudy all evening, and I didn’t think I would even be able to see the rocket through the dense marine layer,” said Yorobe from his gallery in La Jolla. “I didn’t even break down my booth at the festival... Around 7:21 p.m., I made it to the reef and was able to capture the rocket cascading just above the clouds, with the Milky Way just left of center.” Yorobe, who has a strong social media presence, continued on with business as usual – posting the photo to his accounts. Within 24 hours, Yorobe caught wind that Gwynne Shotwell, president and COO of Musk’s Space X corporation, wanted several prints ordered. “Someone who knows [Gwynne] Shotwell saw my photograph on social media, then sent it to her, and she loved it,” Yorobe said. “She called me the next day to order 27 prints in total, two of which were larger aluminum prints, one that ended up in one of Elon Musk’s homes, and 25 smaller prints as gifts to friends and employees.” Yorobe’s aforementioned ethos of “You’ve ‘gotta put yourself out there” seems to be paying off, as the photographer has been at his Fay Avenue gallery for nearly one year.

    Mayor Kevin L. Faulconer has proposed new regulations for motorized scooters to address safety concerns while allowing the dockless transportation to continue operating in San Diego in a more responsible way. Faulconer’s proposed policies are focused on motorized scooters – the predominant mobility device used across the City – but are designed to include other types of dockless devices as the industry continues to evolve. The regulations would cover five primary areas – limiting maximum speed in designated zones, rider education, data sharing, operating fees, and legal indemnification for the City. Limiting speed Using geofencing technology, operators will be required to slow their devices down to 8 mph in designated high-pedestrian traffic zones around the City, including: boardwalks in Mission Beach, Pacific Beach and La Jolla beach areas; downtown Embarcadero; promenade behind the San Diego Convention Center; Martin Luther King Jr. promenade downtown; Balboa Park; NTC Park in Liberty Station; and Mission Bay Park. Rider education Prior to each use, companies will be required to educate riders of local and state vehicle and traffic codes and the cost of a citation for violating those laws. Each device also will need to be clearly labeled “Riding on sidewalks is prohibited.” Data sharing The operators will provide the City with detailed monthly reports that will be useful for Climate Action Plan monitoring and mobility planning, including but not limited to: deployed device data, including fleet size and utilization rates; trip information, including start/end points, routes, distances and duration; parking information; reported incidents and actions taken; maintenance activities; reported obstructions/hazards and actions taken. City indemnification Each operator will be required to indemnify the City from liability claims and each will need to hold a liability insurance policy. Fees Each company wishing to operate within City limits will be issued an annual permit, with a permit fee, and will be required to pay an additional operational fee for the use of City property. Costs associated with each fee are still being determined. “Circulate San Diego supports thoughtful regulations in San Diego in order to ensure the continued availability and safe use of dockless scooters,” said Maya Rosas, policy director for Circulate San Diego. “The scooters are game changers that provide new mobility options, and with safe infrastructure they will help San Diego meet its Climate Action Plan and Vision Zero goals.” The proposal will be reviewed by City Council’s Public Safety and Livable Neighborhoods Committee this week. “I’m pleased to have worked with Mayor Faulconer to develop important safety standards for the protection of scooter riders and pedestrians,” said Councilmember Lorie Zapf, a member of the Public Safety and Livable Neighborhoods Committee. “My goal has always been to slow down the speed of the scooters and address safety concerns. With this proposal I feel confident that we will see changes for the better.”

    I guess you missed this part?

    "Limiting speed" - Using geofencing technology, operators will be required to slow their devices down to 8 mph in designated high-pedestrian traffic zones around the City, including: boardwalks in Mission Beach, Pacific Beach and La Jolla beach areas; downtown Embarcadero; promenade behind the San Diego Convention Center; Martin Luther King Jr. promenade downtown; Balboa Park; NTC Park in Liberty Station; and Mission Bay Park.

    And this part?

    "Rider education" - Prior to each use, companies will be required to educate riders of local and state vehicle and traffic codes and the cost of a citation for violating those laws. Each device also will need to be clearly labeled “Riding on sidewalks is prohibited.”

New solar projects deliver energy to SDG&E customers A newly built solar plant is providing clean, renewable energy to customers who signed up for SDG&E’s EcoChoice and EcoShare programs. The new solar plant and two more that are in development will deliver a combined 42.4 megawatts (MW) of additional renewable energy to the San Diego region, enough to power about 31,800 homes. The Midway Solar III project, owned by Greenbacker Renewable Energy Company, began delivering energy in September. MCASD to break ground on expansion project On Oct. 18, the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego (MCASD) will break ground on its highly anticipated $95M expansion project in La Jolla.  This momentous event will be led by the museum's David C. Copley director and CEO Kathryn Kanjo, board president Dr. Paul E. Jacobs, and founding principal of Selldorf Architects Annabelle Selldorf. MCASD Trustees and Capital Campaign supporters will be in attendance.  Since its founding in 1941 as The Art Center in La Jolla, MCASD has evolved into a leading visual arts organization of national and international renown. With artworks dating from 1950, the permanent collection includes more than 4,700 objects in all media. International in character, the holdings boast strengths in abstraction and minimalism, California art since 1960, Latin American art, and installation art. As the collection has grown, the building has remained constrained, with inadequate galleries to display its holdings. Prudent real estate acquisitions and strong donor engagement have provided the opportunity for MCASD to expand its La Jolla campus at last. For more information about MCASD's expansion project, please visit www.mcasd.org/expansion.   Get Spooked for Halloween by Master Mentalist, Lior Suchard October is here!

La Jolla Girl Scouts earn silver award For nearly four years, members of La Jolla Girl Scout Troop 3803, Selma Hyytinen, Maggie Johnson, Natalie Saham, Allison Foerster and Amber Watt, have been raising community awareness about sudden cardiac arrest, and have assisted in the training of more than 600 middle school students and staff members in Hands-Only CPR/AED (Automated External Defibrillator) use. While working toward their Girl Scout Silver Award, the troop also completed the Sudden Arrhythmia Death Syndromes Foundation’s (SADS) Heart Safe School accreditation process to make Muirlands Middle School the first public school in California to achieve this distinction. These students, along with the Girl Scouts of San Diego, San Diego Project Heart Beat, American Heart Association – San Diego, and San Diego Unified Superintendent Cindy Marten, gathered recently to share their journey, and celebrate the school’s accreditation and the students’ Girl Scout Silver award. “This is everything I know that is good and right about public education. About the American Heart Association. About the Girls Scouts USA.” said Superintendent Cindy Marten. “This is what happens when great organizations come together to support the vision of leaders like you girls. I am so proud and so impressed by what you have done. “You girls are leading the way for something that will happen across the district, this state and this nation because you have shown through your leadership how to make it happen. You are amazing leaders and I thank you for what you have done.” Heart Safe School Accreditation for Muirlands Middle School is the culmination of a four-year journey for the girls in Troop 3803 that began after Maggie Johnson’s father went into cardiac arrest while working out. CPR saved his life. In 2014, Troop 3803 began partnering with San Diego Project Heart Beat to provide CPR/AED training to elementary and middle schools in La Jolla. To expand their efforts, the girls reached out to San Diego Unified School District for assistance. In 2016, the district partnered with the American Heart Association, County Supervisor Ron Roberts, and the County of San Diego, which provided a $100,000 grant to purchase Hands-only CPR training kits for students across the district. These additional kits helped the students train more students at Bird Rock Elementary, where their efforts began, and Muirlands Middle. “The American Heart Association has a vision to train thousands of young life-savers across our county, and with funding support from Supervisor Roberts and leadership support from Superintendent Cindy Marten, they were able to bring that vision to life at Muirlands and throughout the district,” said Jennifer Sobotka, American Heart Association San Diego Division executive director. “And that vision is catching on, as we continue to see more examples across the district of students and teachers being empowered through education and taking action, teaching CPR, learning CPR, saving lives….” The Heart Safe School Accreditation program consists of seven elements aimed at raising awareness and preventing sudden cardiac arrest. 15th annual La Jolla Concours d’Elegance to be held in April Celebrating its 15th year the weekend of Friday, April 12, Saturday, April 13, and Sunday, April 14, the La Jolla Concours d’Elegance presented by LPL Financial will be returning to the stunning shores of La Jolla.
