The Calif Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) will hold a forum in San Diego.   ALL SAN DIEGANS ARE URGED TO ATTEND. 

HELD AT:    Al Bahr Temple/Shriner's  Auditorium: 5440 Kearny Mesa Rd., SD, 92111 (map on attached flyer)  Located between 805 and 15.   South of 52.   Just West of 163.

Located behind Hampton Inn Hotel.    Parking is free.   Carpool if possible!

This forum matters to ALL San Diegans and this is why:  

Strong public support is needed to urge the CPUC to uphold their Proposed Decision regarding 3 UN-NEEDED power plants in San Diego County.   

The Proposed Decision, if adopted, can prevent the emission of over 900,000 annual tons of greenhouse gases by denying purchase power tolling agreements.   The most significant of these plants are Pio Pico, estimated to release 685,000 annual tons of GHGs and Quail Brush with over 200 annual tons.   

SAN DIEGANS would be saddled with at least $1.2 billion in construction and finance costs for Pio Pico and Quail Brush in exchange for  23 permanent jobs, while in contrast, a San Diego Energy District plan to accelerate the adoption of distributed roof top solar can create thousands of clean energy jobs that keep funds circulating locally.

The energy industry is lobbying heavily to get the CPUC Proposed Decision reversed.

SDGE gas & gouging of ratepayers is not the way to a better energy future. This is an opportunity for ratepayers to tell the CPUC this. Every single one of us. http://campaign.r20.constantcontact.com/render?llr=4bkwpoeab&v=001rq5EDIUvnj479qNPZyU_O57A0dWtc5qfL0H49r62pOSudGu9-hk17FrGH4Q5xGSGYqop-t7hj9-2eS3ncZFlYpVXKnASNv0u9rjv2l-QMd1Mz86Vyqs_1HMSl8NA1dbbpimjhEuZtkM%3D

It's worse than mentioned, they have plans to spend tens of $Billions of dollars on energy sprawl in our deserts, giving away our public lands to the likes of Goldman Sachs and the Carlyle Group. Who will pay? You will pay. Meanwhile the rooftops sit vacant. Attend the CPUC meeting Friday and voice your opposition to an ill conceived energy policy that includes these horrific polluters. (next to a school and in a park!) .

I strongly recommend attending this CPUC meeting tonight at 6 PM to help STOP THE BUILDING OF ANOTHER (UNNECESSARY) SDG&E POWER PLANT NEAR MISSION TRAILS, SANTEE, LA MESA, AND TIERRASANTA. Rally at 5:15 PM in the parking lot!

DON'T LET SDG&E FURTHER RUIN OUR HEALTH AND OUR COUNTY. They have installed the unsightly, unnecessary, unhealthy "Sunrise Powerlink", smart meters that damage your health, don't let them put in TWO MORE DIRTY POWER PLANTS! ATTEND THIS MEETING TONIGHT, BRING EVERYONE YOU KNOW!
