SD News Update: Water, SDG&E Gas Prices, Carlsbad Roundabout

It’s Tuesday, January 10th. Here’s a roundup of news stories in and around San Diego County. Here’s what John Riley thinks:

San Diego: The Need for more Water Infrastructure

SDG&E: Gas Prices

  • Wholesale prices up more than 300% since January 2022
  • A household gas bill that came to about $105 last January is now estimated to leap to about $225 this month. That’s an increase of 114 percent. 
  • Prices are about current conditions and a view of the future
  • It almost always comes down to supply and demand. But often there are policies that affect each.
  • Demand high in the West (rain, snow, cold) – but mild weather in the East
  • Approx 90% of supply comes from out of state
  • Less supply – U.S. LNG exporters boosted shipments to Europe by more than 137% in the first 11 months of 2022 from the same period in 2021, according to data from Kepler, supplying more than half of Europe’s imported LNG and helping the region weather a more than 54% plunge in piped shipments from Russia.
  • Biden administration considering ban on gas stoves. Due to asthma or climate change policy?
  • San Diego County Cities are already banning gas in new construction: San Diego, Encinitas, and possibly Del Mar.
  • What can you do? Be energy self-sufficient. Solar, battery, LED. Wear a sweater. Control what you can control.
