San Diego County gets our electricity from two very long transmission lines and the new Sunrise powerlink. We are building large solar in the Imperial valley and wind farms along our mountain ridges. At the same time thousands of homeowners and commercial owners are installing solar PV on rooftops, generating power right at the user.
SDG&E reached the 20% renewable standard last year, and is pushing toward 33% by 2020. Our region is blessed with renewable potential - but do we import it, build distributed generation, or both?
Drinks and snacks will be provided. This is a free event, but a $10 donation is appreciated. Best parking is at street meters, green and yellow curbs are free after 6 pm.
