‘Community Choice Energy’ to be discussed at library


Last updated 10/19/2017 at Noon

Erika Morgan of the San Diego Energy District is the upcoming speaker for the Fallbrook Climate Action Team meeting Monday, Oct. 23, at the Fallbrook Library.

FALLBROOK – The Fallbrook Climate Action Team will welcome San Diego Energy District’s Erika Morgan for a discussion at the Fallbrook Library, 6 p.m., Monday, Oct. 23.

The subject of Morgan’s talk will be “Community Choice Energy.” Community choice is a program that brings competition and lower prices by using sustainable energy into the electricity marketplace. Right now, there is only one electricity provider in San Diego County. 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.

The private utility, SDG&E, would continue to deliver the power over their power lines and provide customer service. It would be an agile public-private partnership.

Morgan is the executive director of the San Diego Energy District. She has worked in clean energy as a policymaker, manager and public educator. A specialist in organizational management, she has consulted to both Fortune 500 and startup solar businesses. During 2000-2003, she led formation of four “opt-in” electricity aggregations, notably organizing a statewide buying pool that brought 100 percent renewably-generated electricity to purchasers across the state of Maine.

The community is invited to attend. The library is located at 124 S. Mission Road.
