Tonight, just before midnight, the Santa Monica City Council voted unanimously to continue exploring their CCA options with South Bay Clean Power (as well as LA County).
Dean Kubani was asked his opinion about the different CCA options available to the City. Dean is the Director of City of Santa Monica’s Office of Sustainability and the Environment. He oversees all of the City’s efforts related to water and energy efficiency, urban runoff, green building, hazardous materials and sustainability. Since 1994 Dean has directed the ongoing development, implementation and evaluation of the Santa Monica Sustainable City Program.
Council also unanimously adopted a resolution that establishes a platform of goals and objectives for negotiation and appoints one Council representative, one staff liaison and one staff alternate to formally participate in Community Choice Aggregation Joint Powers Authority negotiations.
