SDED Membership Off to Great Start
Since 2011, SDED has received grants and donations from many sources: sponsors, businesses and foundations, individual friends, and even a grant from the County of San Diego. We have been very grateful for all this support!
This degree of voluntary financial support convinced SDED to keep going. It has enabled us to reach SDED's current stage of development. Looking ahead, however, SDED foresees the need to keep growing. To spread the word actively about the economic benefits of clean electricity choice, as enabled through the tool of 'community choice aggregation' CCA. To advocate for those harmed by the current monopoly system and to articulate --broadly, consistently, repeatedly -- the alternatives to this system.
Accordingly, to create a platform for both members to engage and SDED to grow, in 2014 the Board of Directors took an additional step. Beginning in 2015, SDED launched a formal Membership program.
Membership in SDED says a lot. Memberships help financially and politically. Every business joining SDED puts its weight behind the message -- that there IS a better way to generate and provide electricity. The core message is clear: it is time to bring clean electricity choices to all rate-payers. A CCA for the San Diego region is a vehicle for this change.
After the first quarter of SDED's new Membership program, we are very pleased to recognize and thank the following business members. They support our mission and want to see it succeed. Please consider joining them.
