Do any of you smart piggs have any opinions on Community Choice Aggregation? (Or as it's sometimes called, Community Choice Energy) It seems Sierra Club is promoting this as a way for consumers to pick energy from renewable sources, instead of letting electric companies dictate how much of our energy comes from where. SDG&E is apparently gearing up for a big public fight. Googling I found a couple of rather uninformative articles, but from what I gather this would allow consumers to buy their electricity from sources other than SDG&E. (Presumably you'd still pay SDG&E for transmission) While I'm leery of anything Sierra Club is promoting, I also think that choice for consumers is a good idea. What do you folks know about this?
