We have "paused" CivEnergy!!
We have "paused" CivEnergy for the time being. We are looking to redesign and re implement CivEnergy as 2 different websites, one that focuses on the community organization directory and one that focuses on online election forums.
New CA Senate Bills Shift Energy Planning to Local Governments
By Lorenzo Kristov, Davis resident and energy policy professional. Two new bills in the California Senate — SB 1314 (Bill Dodd) and SB 1240 (Nancy Skinner) — can open the way for cities, counties, energy customers and third parties to plan and deploy clean local energy resources to address resilience and sustainability. These bills initiate a major shift in energy planning and decision making to local governments and communities, rather than relying entirely on the centralized, top-down utility energy planning that has dominated energy policy in California for decades.
