Towns can switch to renewables and save citizens money

San Diego is planning an end-run around their electric utility and they figure they can save their citizens quite a lot of money in the process.
Because of separate state mandates, 50 percent of SDG&E’s power needs to be renewable by 2030. The city said it can hit that 50 percent target faster and cheaper: The city’s rates would be 2 percent higher than SDG&E’s in the first year of its government-run program but then less and less expensive until 2026, when the city’s rates could be 11 percent lower.
Unfortunately we can't do this in AZ yet because our legislature hasn't allowed us to have Community Choice Aggregation System. Why not?
