Like many cities around the world, San Diego is trying to figure out new and better ways to produce energy without making an impact (or at least as much of one) on the environment. The sooner green energy the better, no matter where you stand politically, because, honestly, who really dislikes less pollution in our air and water?

The San Diego County Board of Supervisors voted 3-2 Wednesday to direct staffers to look into possible components and costs of a comprehensive renewable energy plan and to report their findings in about four months.

Supervisor Dianne Jacob said the research would put the county “at the starting gate to potentially develop a plan” and would lead to the board’s ultimate decision whether to move forward with its development.

San Diego County had worked to expand renewable energy and green building development, but it needs a comprehensive approach, according to Jacob.
