Current Issues

What Is Community Choice Energy?

Recognizing that local residents and businesses wanted to choose more renewable power sources, stabilize rates, and invest revenues into projects that have a positive effect on the local community, the state legislature enacted Assembly Bill 117 in 2002. AB 117 allows cities and counties to establish nonprofit electricity providers in order to purchase power on behalf of their populations.

Letter to Governor Brown regarding the PUC

Derek Casady's letter on behalf of the LJDC to request that Governor Brown replace the five members of the Public Utilities Commission with five new individuals from diverse backgrounds not related to the utility industry

Call To Mobilize

Climate change is causing immense human suffering and damage to the natural world.
It threatens the collapse of civilization within this century.
Confronting this crisis is the great moral imperative of our time.

Clean Elections

Clean Elections are public financing of elections. Someone can elect to run as a clean candidate and earn the right for public financing by getting a large number of voters to support them. Once they qualify, they get full public funding of their campaign, and they cannot contribute to their campaign nor solicit others for money.
