San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E) issued the following statement in response to Mayor Gloria's announcement regarding an agreement on Gas and Electricity Franchises.
“Mayor Todd Gloria, his administration, and the City Attorney challenged us to identify new and creative ways to work with the City as part of modernized franchise agreements. The proposed agreements reflect solutions to the feedback heard during the robust public process, and goals expressed by the City Council and their request for more transparency and accountability. The proposed agreements will launch a new phase of our relationship with the City of San Diego, while ensuring our 4,500 highly trained professionals are able to deliver safe and reliable energy to help the City achieve its climate and equity objectives. We look forward to the City Council discussion of the Mayor’s recommendation.”
