Climate Action Plan Updates
San Diego Community Power
On September 10, 2019, La Mesa City Council approved community choice aggregation (CCA) through a regional CCA program in partnership with Chula Vista, Encinitas, Imperial Beach and San Diego. This is a key strategy to ensure La Mesa and its partners meet their 100% renewable electricity goals and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
The newly launched CCA, called San Diego Community Power, will manage the purchase of clean electricity on behalf of its constituents, and SDG&E will continue to deliver power, provide maintenance services and manage billing. The San Diego Community Power Board will work throughout 2020 to establish operations and prepare to serve customers in 2021. You can learn more about San Diego Community Power and the board meeting schedule at its temporary website.
This winter, La Mesa is excited to kick off its second semester partnering with San Diego State University’s (SDSU) Sage Project. The Sage Project is a partnership that connects SDSU students and faculty with high‐priority, high-need community projects. This collaboration helps generate fresh ideas that create momentum and provide tangible service to the community. Last semester, 12 classes collaborated with the City on the implementation of the Climate Action Plan (CAP), focusing on active transportation, zero-waste and housing. Winter semester students will build on this work and continue support of CAP implementation.
