In 2002 the California legislature passed a law enabling cities and counties to establish Community Choice programs such as Sonoma Clean Power and Marin Clean Energy. PG&E spent millions of dollars trying to defeat community choice and the voters said no resoundingly.
Customers of these new programs are starting to reap benefits that go beyond the vision legislators had in 2002.
But community choice will be crushed if Assembly Bill 2145 passes.

HEALDSBURG — Truett-Hurst, Inc. (Nasdaq: THST) on Thursday said it signed a deal with an Oakland-based maker of paper bottles to take over supplying the shelf-bound vessels for the PaperBoy wine brand after the previous United Kingdom-based supplier of the unique wine container recently encountered financial problems.
Truett-Hurst said the closer proximity of that plant will help the company manage production better and have more efficient transportation. Strong sales for PaperBoy have been key to Truett-Hurst’s reported growth, and the company recently alerted investors to the hiccup in the paper bottle supply after UK-based GreenBottle in late February filed for administration, that country’s equivalent to bankruptcy.
At the time, Truett-Hurst said it had found a new supplier.
