SDG&E funds PAC to fight against municipal power effort

SAN DIEGO — Supporters of Power San Diego, a group trying to form a municipal power nonprofit in the city, now have something else to get energized about.

SDG&E is funding a political action committee (PAC) to combat municipal power, called Responsible Energy San Diego.
“Make no mistake, responsible energy has nothing to do with this PAC,” said Dorrie Bruggemann, a spokesperson for Power San Diego.

“SDG&E charges us the highest rates in the nation and they make record profits, while one in four San Diegans can’t pay their electricity bills,” Bruggemann said Tuesday at a downtown news conference.
