Approved the agreement with California Choice Energy Authority for
Community Choice Aggregation Technical Study and Implementation
Plan. A potential Commerce CCA program would allow the City to
combine the electricity supply of both the residential and business
communities into a single community-wide collective program. This
program will be overseen by the City and will potentially provide a
minimum of 3-5% in savings to residents’ energy bill and will use
anywhere between 33-100% renewable energy. This will help reduce
greenhouse gas emissions, increase local renewable energy efforts,
and increase local job creation.

Another Commerce teen, who was unable to invite all her friends
and acquaintances to her party, suffered consequences when one of
her guests posted a party photo on Instagram. Unfortunately, those
who were not invited saw the photo and were offended and
unforgiving.

A youth inadvertently jeopardized her position as captain of her team
due to something she posted on Instagram which was seen by her
coach. She was warned that if there was a similar post, she’d lose her
title. Initially, the girl was mad at possible culprits who could have sent
her post to her coach, but she has since learned from the experience.
“I now realize the issue wasn’t the person who told on me; the issue
was me posting it and not being a good example…” she said.
