From Martha Sullivan
I'm planning to attend this TONIGHT (7pm) at the Sierra Club's local Chapter Office in North Park-ish -- if you'd like to carpool from the Del Mar area, let me know! See following for details.
We're heading into the homestretch on the CA Public Utilities Commission's decision on this project (expected later this summer), and I KNOW from my 20+ years experience as as CPUC staffer/consultant that SDG&E and Sempra will pull out ALL the stops to get an approval for this throwback technology (and continue to yoke us to it for decades to come).
I know this is a very busy time, with campaigns underway and such, not to mention our "regular" lives! I'm going to wedge this meeting in tonight so I can be most effective going forward in aiding this extremely important cause for the future of our County/Region. I hope you can, too.
THANK YOU for your consideration,
?We citizens and residents should not be expected to have to fight over and over and over again for land that has been set aside for a state park,? Virginia McIlwain of San Diego told PUC officials. ?The Sunrise Powerlink is not the most effective and least costly. It is simply the most profitable for SDG&E..? (2/25/08 CPUC hrg in San Diego)

Last week, I told you about the amazing efforts of over 1,000 activists who attended the Sunrise Powerlink Public Hearings to send a message to decision makers and public officials that we have smarter energy alternatives than the unnecessary, damaging Sunrise Powerlink. The overwhelming attendance prompted California Public Utilities Commissioner Dian Grueneich to comment in the San Diego Union-Tribune, ?This is among the most extensive public participation we've seen for any project.?

Although we have passed a significant milestone, our battle is not over. This is why I need you to attend tonight's Volunteer Mobilization Meeting to learn about the next steps in the campaign and simple, effective things you can do to help protect local communities, Anza-Borrego Desert State Park and the Cleveland National Forest from this devastating proposal. At the meeting, I will give a briefing about the Hearings, then discuss how you can do your part to ensure a smart energy future for San Diego. Details are below:
