Someone else also forwarded this article to as well, good piece. ILSR is 
where we get a lot of our support material.

If we had a semi locally owned electric cooperative to work from, they 
would be a natural initiator of an effort. PG+E might be an ideal 
candidate to lease the DavisGIG fiber to in our community. It seems like 
it would be something in their interest that would provide their 
operations a direct benefit. For example, Chattanooga EPB leading the 
way on that with automated and autonomous real time power routing 
capabilities their networked electrical assets provide.

At the July BATF meeting some people from the Community Choice Energy 
committee came to make that proposition, and it has been added as a 
consideration or possible use case scenario to the feasibility study RFP 

The city release date for that is sometime around 9.1.2016 by the way.
