New Times SLO – May 23, 2019
he Grover Beach and Paso Robles city councils took their first official steps to join Monterey Bay Community Power (MBCP) the week of May 20—kicking off what’s expected to be a countywide exodus from PG&E to the northernly public electricity provider over the next few months.
Both city councils voted to adopt first readings of ordinances to join MBCP. If finalized, they’ll be the third and fourth cities to do so, along with SLO and Morro Bay.
Pismo Beach, Arroyo Grande, Atascadero, Santa Maria, and Guadalupe, as well as SLO County, have upcoming meetings to consider joining the burgeoning Community Choice Energy (CCE) agency currently serving Monterey, Santa Cruz, and San Benito counties.
