January 30, 2014 (San Diego) – In her state of the county address yesterday, Chairwoman Dianne Jacob said the County has saved nearly $2 million a year by buying 90 percent of its electricity from sources other than SDG&E. “The problem is, consumers don’t have the same right. You can’t shop around like the County. But if it’s good enough for government, it should be good enough for you,” she said, then announced support for a community choice aggregation to give consumers new choices in where to buy electric power.
