The San Diego Clean Air Coalition is concerned with the very possible large increase of air pollution if Southern California Edison takes over the San Diego Gas & Electric power plants. We might find ourselves producing power (with its accompanying pollution) for Orange County and the rest of Edison's service area. Edison President Howard Allen alluded to this when he explained the benefits to his constituents.
Our skies are already tinged with brown, and our Encina and South Bay plants could double or triple their pollution. I do hope city officials consider this possible consequence to a California Edison takeover.
