Virginia Johnson made a great presentation on the Monterey Bay Community Power - a regional project among 19 local government agencies that aims to provide choice in electricity provision to residents and businesses who prefer clean-source power...It will purchase from alternative sources of energy, with its vested power as much alternative energy as possible; the energy will be distributed by PG&E at the same rate or lower; and, surplus revenues will help fund more renewable energy projects, create jobs, and stimulate the economy! 
Virginia has lead the team who put together this Community Choice Energy for 3 years working for County Supervisor Bruce McPherson. 😅 Before that she worked for 17 years as Executive Director of Ecology Action - a local Environmental Consulting Non-Profit and increased its budget from $125 K to $28 million. One of Ecology Action's help to the community was the renovation of the Sentinel Building to receive a LEED Gold  Building Certification!
