The Marin Energy Authority, made up of officials from the county and most of its cities and towns, plans to compete with Pacific Gas and Electric to provide more renewable energy. PG&E opposes the plan and is pushing for a ballot measure that would allow taxpayers to decide whether their local governments can take on the job of energy provider.

Guests:
Dawn Weisz, interim director of the Marin Energy Authority
Severin Borenstein, co-director and professor at The Energy Institute at UC Berkeley's Haas School of Business
Paul Fenn, president of Local Power Incorporated
Jeanne MacLeamy, mayor of Novato
David Rubin, director of service analysis for PG&E
