Supporting Community Choice Energy for Highest Renewable Rate with Cost Parity

Dear Council Members,

I continue to appreciate your actions in setting community-wide greenhouse gas reduction targets. Nearly every initiative required to achieve these targets will provide financial and/or quality of life benefits to our community.

When these goals were established it was with the understanding that sufficient initiatives and funding needed to be quickly identified in order to achieve these 27%-by-2020 reduction targets.

It appears that Community Choice Energy provides the clearest opportunity at lowest cost to achieve these goals, and it is fitting that you have participated in the San Mateo County study of Community Choice Energy and are taking a closer look at the findings.

Community Choice Energy through San Mateo County is a great opportunity for Menlo Park to get cleaner electricity to help meet its 2020 climate goals without increasing energy costs for residents and businesses. Anyone who does not want to participate can easily stick with PG&E by simply opting out.

Based on the city's climate goals and the results of the study, I would urge Menlo Park to join the County CCE, and pursue an energy mix as close as possible to 100% clean energy without increasing costs to consumers, while preserving the right of those who prefer PG&E’s power mix to stick with it.

Please support clean power for Menlo Park and enable our community to achieve the greenhouse gas emission reduction targets.

Thank you for your efforts.
