South Bay Clean Power

Thank You, Senator Ben Allen!

Two years ago, in August of 2014, then candidate for State Senate, Ben Allen, posed for the photo above with then Manhattan Beach Mayor, Amy Thomas Howorth, and new Chair of the South Bay Clean Power Working Group, Joe Galliani.

Flash forward 2 years and now State Senator Ben Allen has been a strong and consistent supporter of our Community Choice Power efforts.

Yesterday, in his comments on AB 1110, the Senator gave a very important floor speech on the bill in which he insisted that the CEC and CARB must establish greenhouse gas reporting standards that include full lifecycle emissions of electricity sources.

We salute Senator Allen’s wisdom and leadership on this issue and we are deeply gratified to have such an environmental champion playing a leadership role on CCAs in Sacramento. Thank you, Senator Ben Allen!

Thank you, Howard Choy

We want to thank LA County’s General Manager of Sustainability, Howard Choy, for his comments on the record, recognizing our organization’s role in starting the LA County CCA initiative.

Here is Mr. Choy speaking to the Long Beach Sustainable City Commission on March 24, 2016.
