Re: Support for Climate Action Plan and 100% Renewable Energy

Mayor Faulconer:

I am writing to you on behalf of the Ocean Beach Planning Board. At our May 2015 meeting we
had a discussion regarding the draft of the Climate Action Plan you released. It is our
understanding that you and the City Council will be taking action on this later this year.
The Ocean Beach Planning Board strongly supports the Climate Action Plan draft as released,
and on June 3, 2015 we passed a motion of support for this much-needed legislation.

Climate change is one of the greatest threats to human existence, and we as a community must act to find common-sense solutions that protect public health and our quality of life for future generations. San Diego has a wealth of local, clean energy solutions, and we support your vision of making San Diego the green energy capital of the world.

We urge you to act as quickly as possible to pass this strong, legally binding climate plan that:

• Ensures Local Control of Energy Decisions
• Explores Opportunity for Implementing Community Choice Energy
• Achieves 100% Renewable Energy by 2035
• Puts Solar in All Communities
• Makes Our Homes and Buildings Green, Healthy and Efficient
• Ensures Safe, Clean, Convenient and Affordable Public Transit
• Provides Walkable and Bikeable Neighborhoods for All
• Creates Good – Paying, Local Green Jobs
• Protects Natural Resources

Thank you for supporting a sustainable future for San Diego.

Sincerely,

John Ambert, Chair
