On Tuesday night, May 23, the City Council of Palos Verdes Estates after hearing presentations from their staff; from South Bay Clean Power Working Group Chair, Joe Galliani; from Matt Skolnik of the Los Angeles County Chief of Sustainability’s office and from Joe Sullivan of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers and the Los Angeles Chapter of the National Electrical Contractors Association decided to have staff review and analyze the draft JPA and Business plan of South Bay Clean Power and report back on its merits. Staff will also review and consider the JPA and business plan offered by the County’s Los Angeles Community Choice Energy (LACCE) program.
