San Diegans pay high utility rates and much of our energy still comes from fossil fuels. We can do better. The City’s electricity and gas franchise agreements are expiring. For the first time in 50-years we can get a better deal and create a more sustainable clean energy future.

Read more about the campaign, and sign and share our petition calling on the mayor and city council to get the best deal possible.


SanDiego350 leaders believe we, as advocates for climate justice, must stand for  dismantling institutional racism and white supremacy. We strive for a world where people of color have a safe and healthy future on this planet.  Read our post and resources.


We want more people to understand the urgency and scale of the climate crisis and to take action.

Work with us to develop messaging, create powerful social media posts, emails, news releases, and videos — and reach people.

Thanks for helping to stop SDG&E’s Unjust, Anti-climate Rate Increase!

In March, the California Public Utilities Commission rejected SDG&E’s proposal to raise the minimum electricity bill from $10 to $38 per month for all households in San Diego County. Read the UT story, with a quote from SD350 Public Policy Chair Joyce Lane. This dramatic increase would have greatly reduced the amount of solar that is installed and unfairly burdened low income residents who use little energy.  Thanks to everyone who signed the petition or took other actions to achieve this positive result.


Over 3,500 students walked out of more than 20 schools on Sept 20 for the Global Climate Strike!!

Accompanied by over 1,000 parents, teachers, workers and retirees. Thank you to everyone who walked out or otherwise supported the effort.

COMMUNITY CHOICE ENERGY IS A GO!!!

Finally! Five city councils voted yes in September 2019 to initiate a joint Community Choice program and SanDiego350 members joined allies to support each of the votes. Community Choice will be moving forward in San Diego, La Mesa, Chula Vista, Encinitas and Imperial Beach. Thanks to everyone who signed the petition and turned out at council meetings!

There’s still work to be done after the JPA is approved to push for the CCE program to be super strong on climate, equity and labor provisions, but after over 4 years of work we’ve gotten most of what we wanted, and this is a HUGE STEP FORWARD toward a just transition to 100% clean energy.

Community Choice Energy is the key to getting the City of San Diego to 100% renewable energy by 2035.  CCE allows cities and counties to purchase power on behalf of their residents and businesses to provide renewable energy at a competitive prices while providing local control and local family sustaining clean energy jobs to our region.
