SAVE SOLAR: Join the Rally to Save Solar on Wednesday at 2:00 pm

Please see Action Alert from Sullivan Solar!

the rally for solar & against SDG&E greed
2-2:30 p.m.

Hello Solar Champions, 
Join us on Wednesday at the rally to support solar and protest
SDG&E’s greed!  Speakers include County Supervisor Dianne Jacob,
Climate Action Campaign’s Nicole Capretz, Sullivan Solar Power’s Daniel
Sullivan and Sierra Club’s Alejandro Montes. 
In January the California Public Utilities Commission made
their final decision regarding the future of solar (net metering
2.0), which was a compromise for both solar and the utilities.
SDG&E, Edison and PG&E are now using ratepayers’ money to try to
fight the final decision by their own watch dog to kill solar to benefit
their shareholders. Please support solar progress in California
and come speak out at the rally this Wednesday at 2 p.m. at SDG&E’s
corporate office (8326 Century Park Ct, San Diego, 92123). 
Note: Those who have gone solar under net metering 1.0 are
grandfathered into the current agreement. 
Any questions about the event? Email Tara Kelly at

New Chatham Monitoring Data and Creek Feasibility Study Now Available

The Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) is the oversight agency for the Chatham Barrel Yard cleanup.  They have posted the most recent documents about the site for public review.  You can get them on the ENVIROSTOR website or at this link  October2015 regular water monitoring report .  This report includes the regular analysis and monitoring results for the most recent round of sampling.  We will be reviewing it and will share our thoughts in the future.

Also, of major importance is the Feasibility Study for Felicita Creek discharges.  This study evaluates options for stopping or reducing the discharges of pollutants from Chatham into Felicita Creek.  This is a high priority for Escondido Neighbors United and we encourage everyone to take a look and weigh in on this.

Thanks to DTSC for making these documents available to us.

Hope you all well and ready for Spring!
