    With hotter temperatures quickly approaching, the Energy Providers of Southern California – a joint coalition of Southern California natural gas and electric utilities, in partnership with the California Public Utilities Commission, California Independent System Operator, and local city governments – today announced Conserve Energy SoCal, an initiative to bring Southern California residents together to conserve energy, save money and reduce the risk of natural gas and electricity shortages this year. In addition to existing conservation programs and financial incentives from local utilities, the Energy Providers of Southern California are expanding the effort by teaming up to educate and encourage consumers to conserve electricity and natural gas through the Conserve Energy SoCal initiative.

    Perris officials welcomed the opening June 15 of a new health center open to walk-in patients and those with appointments, saying the clinic meets an unserved need for many City residents.

    The new health center, 1675 North Perris Blvd., is operated by North County Health Services, which is based in San Marcos. The company serves patients at 11 locations throughout San Diego County. Perris marks its first excursion into Riverside County.

    Mayor Daryl Busch and City Councilman Mark Yarbrough represented the City of Perris at Wednesday’s official ribbon-cutting ceremony. They were joined by representatives of the Perris Valley Chamber of Commerce and executives from the health-care provider.

    “It’s nice to have a new medical services provider here in Perris,” Busch said. “It’s a real pleasure to see them here. I’m sure the community will make good use of the services they provide.”

    Irma Cota, president and CEO of North County Health Services, prepares to cut the ribbon on the new health center on Perris Boulevard while Mayor Daryl Busch (black polo) and City Councilman Mark Yarbrough (left) look on.

    Irma Cota, president and CEO of North County Health Services, prepares to cut the ribbon on the new health center on Perris Boulevard while Mayor Daryl Busch (black polo) and City Councilman Mark Yarbrough (left) look on.

    The health center provides a wide range of services, including immunizations, physical exams and treatment for colds, flu and other medical conditions. The center currently is staffed by one doctor and two nurse practitioners who see about 50 to 60 patients per day since its soft-opening in March.

    Future plans include adding dental care and psychological care. Center staff work with patients without insurance to enroll them in Medi Cal and Covered California programs. The building includes large conference rooms to conduct informational and question-and-answer sessions about conditions like diabetes.

    Yarbrough noted that many Perris residents are economically disadvantaged and lack ready access to quality health care. The new health center should bridge that gap.

    “The City of Perris is concerned about the health of its residents and is committed to improving it,” he said. “This facility will improve community health. We could not be more pleased.”

    Irma Cota, president and chief executive officer of North County Health Services, said the company set up shop in Perris because many residents are underserved. She said the City worked closely with the clinic to get the doors opened on time.

    “The cooperation from the City has been excellent,” she said.

    Company spokeswoman Carley Star said the healthcare provider plans to partner with Perris officials on their “Green City Farm Program,” a community garden located on the City Hall Campus. North County Health Services would also like to work with Perris on nutrition-education and healthy-eating programs. The Perris clinic location will host a health fair on July 28 from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m., Star said.

    Earlier this month, we had the great pleasure of spending an evening with some of our most dedicated supporters, clients, volunteers and partners at our annual Interconnection event in San Francisco. It was an opportunity to celebrate our collective accomplishments, and honor people and organizations that have been key supporters of our mission.

    California State Senate President Pro Tem Kevin de León, our first honoree, has been a longtime champion of environmental justice in the state, and was a driving force behind two key pieces of legislation that have put solar on thousands of rooftops, and millions of dollars back into the pockets of low-income families (watch the video). We also honored Enphase, a company that has supported us through employee volunteerism and donations of microinverters since the time when we were both tiny start-ups with big aspirations (watch the video).

    The highlight of the evening for all of us (continue here)...
