This week the Carlsbad City Council voted unanimously to join the cities of Del Mar and Encinitas in conducting a Community Choice Energy technical study. The study is a big step on the way to making a decision about forming a new Community Choice electricity provider.
We are proud of our Sierra Club My Generation team in Carlsbad. This merry band of volunteers turned out 46 people to the council meeting, most of whom stuck it out until 11 p.m. when the votes were finally cast. Our team has been working on gaining the council’s support for two years. Here is a sample of what they did:
