Climate Action Plans

In December 2015, San Diego City Council approved the city’s Climate Action Plan (CAP) [Link] to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 40% below 1990 levels by 2030 in accordance with state law. The plan seeks to do this in a variety of ways, including through energy and water efficient buildings, clean and renewable energy, increasing transit options, zero waste, and preparing for actual effects of climate change.

Biocom supported approval of the CAP, and applauds the inclusion of cost-benefit analysis of any regulations that are implemented during the next phase of the plan, which will include regulatory language to achieve the targets the plan outlines.

Request: Minimize unfunded mandates for businesses during the implementation of the Climate Action Plan.

Community Choice Energy

Regions throughout California are implementing or deciding whether to implement Community Choice Aggregation, or government-run energy utilities. Biocom has concerns about fees governments pay to private utilities for breaking long-term contracts, and about the ability of CCAs to invest in new renewable energy infrastructure. We support thorough investigation into all costs and benefits before implementation of CCAs.
