California Briefing / Los Angeles

Chick opposes solar energy plan

February 06, 2009|David Zahniser

Los Angeles City Controller Laura Chick said Thursday that she is against the solar energy plan known as Measure B.

She said the proposal was rushed through the City Council without sufficient review and noted that there are two reports with widely divergent cost estimates for the plan to add 400 megawatts of solar panels to parking lots, rooftops and other surfaces by 2014.

Chick made her remarks as she unveiled a 223-page report on the Department of Water and Power that says the agency has not determined how much more its ratepayers would have to pay for the shift to solar, wind and geothermal energy.
