MARIN COUNTY -- Supporters and opponents of the controversial Marin Energy Authority Community Choice Aggregation, or CCA, proposal will face off at the fourth-annual Impact Marin conference sponsored by the Business Journal March 11.
Dawn Weisz, principal planner for the Marin County Community Development Committee, will speak in support of the Marin Energy Authority not-for-profit public agency heading up implementation of a system that will permit cities and the county to purchase electricity for residents and businesses.
Former Assemblymember and PG&E consultant Joe Nation will be representing the Common Sense Coalition, an organization formed in opposition to this plan.
The Marin Energy Authority is proposed to be the agency providing the renewable energy alternative through the Marin Clean Energy program.
The authority was created in December 2008 to address climate change by attempting to reduce energy-related greenhouse gas emissions. Also, the authority intends to address issues relating to securing energy supply, price stability and energy efficiencies.
