You won’t want to miss this month’s meeting featuring our very own San Diego City Attorney, Mara Elliot. Listen to Mara talk about local issues and hear her answer your questions.
Mara W. Elliott was elected City Attorney of San Diego in 2016 after serving as the Chief Deputy City Attorney for the Office’s Public Services Section and legal adviser to the City’s Independent Audit Committee and Environment Committee. Mara and the lawyers in her section held polluters accountable, reformed city contracting, cut administrative red tape, and strengthened the city’s Living Wage and Non-Discrimination in Contracting Ordinances.
Additionally, we will have a panel of speakers who will discuss energy alternatives and initiatives. The panel includes:
Neil Gerber, Project Developer with Sullivan Solar Power. Neil will cover some solar basics, time of use rates, and battery storage.
Mark Hughes, Climate Action Campaign. Mark will talk about local energy initiatives that CAC is involved with included community choice energy
Dan King, Assistant City Manager for Solana Beach. Solana Beach is the first city in San Diego county to switch to community choice energy. Dan will speak about the city’s decision to adopt CCE and their experience thus far.
Paul Cleary, Executive Director for GRID Alternatives San Diego. GRID Alternatives San Diego bridges the solar divide, bringing solar energy to low-income families who couldn’t otherwise afford it while training the green workforce of tomorrow. Paul will talk about what GRID Alternatives is currently doing in the SD community.
