Vote No on Prop 16

Currently, California state law gives local elected officials the right to arrange to provide electricity within their jurisdiction through a contract with an electricity provider other than investor-owned utilities. If Proposition 16 is approved by voters, it will take a two-thirds vote of the electorate before a public agency could enter the retail power business. This will make it more difficult than it is currently for local entities to form either municipal utilities, or community wide clean electricity districts called Community Choice Aggregators (CCAs).

People’s strongly supports a consumer’s right to choose their power source and recommends a No vote on proposition 16 in the upcoming June election.
