Act Now to Support Clean Energy for Santa Barbara County

On Wednesday, June 15, the Santa Barbara County Board of Supervisors will vote on funding to go towards a local Community Choice Energy program. This is a powerful tool that would provide county residents with cleaner electricity from renewable sources like solar and wind, all for prices competitive with or cheaper than our current utility.

Wednesday’s budget hearing is the best opportunity to secure
funding for Community Choice Energy and continue progress toward launching a local program.

Similar programs in Marin, Sonoma, Lancaster and San Francisco have all demonstrated that Community Choice Energy provides:

  • Cleaner electricity with lower greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions
  • Competitive and most often cheaper electricity rates
  • Local control and local accountability of our energy provider
  • New opportunities for local renewable energy projects and high paying, union jobs.

Sign this letter now to urge supervisors to support Community Choice Energy by voting yes for 2016-2017 funding.
