San Onofre New Glass Power Plant


Hi friends,

San Diego Gas & Electric wants to replace the recently shuttered San Onofre nuclear plant with massive amounts of new gas power — and they’re trying to do it through an insider deal that doesn’t allow clean energy options to compete.

This is no time to lock San Diego into decades of fossil fuel power. Click here to demand clean power for our region.

This rush for more fossil power would come at a major cost to energy customers, public health and our climate. Help us urge state regulators to reject SDG&E’s application and send a clear message that California is committed to clean, renewable energy.

San Diego can power itself through renewables, energy efficiency, demand response, and other pollution-free energy options, yet SDG&E is pushing a plan that would make us dependent on expensive, climate-warming fuel for years to come.

Put a stop to SDG&E’s dirty power plan.

This natural gas bonanza carries a big price tag for our climate. We’ve already seen an increase in climate pollution from natural gas generation in the wake of San Onofre’s closing. Permanently increasing our dependence on fossil fuels would put California even father behind on our carbon reduction and clean energy targets.

The California Public Utilities Commission is currently considering SDG&E’s application, so we’re partnering with clean energy advocates from across the state to show CPUC exactly how many people oppose this plan. If we can demonstrate anough public opposition, then we’ve got a chance to stop it.

Sign the petition to stop SDG&E’s dirty energy proposal in its tracks, and send a clear message to the CPUC that energy consumers demand clean, renewable energy now:

Project Encinitas


NCA is working to support an initiative to limit zoning increases in Encinitas.

Preserve Calaveras’s Lake


Preserve Calaveras’s Campaign to Save Open Spaces (SOS) – NCA supports this campaign to ensure open spaces do not disappear in Carlsbad. This is a joint effort with Preserve Calaveras to protect the Buena Vista Creek Valley adjacent to the Buena Vista Creek Ecological Reserve from excess development. This area has been identified as one of the 12 most endangered historic sites in all of San Diego County. In 2008, the Carlsbad Citizen’s Open Space Committee ranked this area the #1 priority parcel to preserve in the ENTIRE city! For more information about the campaign, contact Diane Nygaard at dandd2@peoplepc.com.

La Costa Town Square (LCTS)


La Costa Towne Center, located on the southeast corner of La Costa Ave. and El Camino Real was slated for redevelopment but the developer has since cancelled the proposed design following objections raised by North County Advocates.

La Costa Town Square (LCTS) – NCA is carefully monitoring the commercial development located at the southeast corner of La Costa Boulevard and Rancho Santa Fe Road in Carlsbad, CA. We are ensuring that the development is in compliance with our settlement agreement with the City of Carlsbad. In 2009, the City certified an Environmental Impact Report (EIR) and approved several land use permits for the La Costa Town Square project. NCA filed legal challenges to and submitted comments regarding the adequacy of the EIR and project permits with the court and state regulators. NCA, Aspen Properties and La Costa Town Square have reached a settlement, which we believe is beneficial for all concerned. NCA thanks the many local citizens who helped with its efforts and believes the resulting project will be better for the community as a result.
