Title

Consider recommendations regarding Community Choice Energy (CCE) Updated Feasibility Study Results, as follows:

 

a) Consider and approve the adoption (Second Reading) of the Ordinance to authorize the implementation of a CCE program within the County’s jurisdiction through participation in Monterey Bay Community Power’s Community Choice Aggregation Program;

 

b) Consider and approve adoption of a Resolution requesting membership in the Monterey Bay Community Power joint powers authority;

 

c) Consider and approve rescission of Resolution 18-192, which directed County staff to pursue formation of a new JPA and CCE program; and

 

d) Determine that the above recommended actions do not constitute a project subject to environmental review under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) pursuant to CEQA Guidelines Section 15262, as the actions involve only feasibility or planning studies for possible future actions which the Board has not approved, adopted, or funded and does not have a legally binding effect on later activities; CEQA Guidelines Section 15378(b)(4), finding that the actions are the creation of a governmental funding mechanism or other government fiscal activity, which do not involve any commitment to any specific project which may result in a potentially significant physical impact on the environment; and CEQA Guidelines Section 15378(b)(5), finding that the actions are the organizational or administrative activities of governments that will not result in direct or indirect physical changes in the environment.
