"As a lifelong resident of Solana Beach, I am protective of our seaside community, so I was disappointed to learn the city had decided this spring to get into the always-volatile and risky energy business. My concerns grew several weeks ago when I received an e-blast notice from the city, advertising its new community choice aggregation service, which will sell energy from a new bureaucracy established and run by Solana Beach.
The city’s advertisement was circulated to Solana Beach residents. I was alarmed to learn the advertisement is highly misleading and inaccurate.
All residents and business within Solana Beach should be aware that every San Diego Gas & Electric customer has been automatically enrolled in what’s called the Solana Energy Alliance. Officials are not being truthful about the sources of energy they are buying and the actual savings, if any, we will receive. This new program is billed as greener and cheaper, but the facts tell a different story."
