Our Mission

The mission of The Protect Our Communities Foundation is to protect rural communities and natural resources in southern California and northern Baja California from unnecessary and harmful large-scale and industrial energy projects, and to advance smart energy solutions. Our focus in southern California is San Diego and Imperial Counties.

Support POC

Connected Actions

In addition to the Sunrise Powerlink, SDG&E and SEMPRA are planning other invasive energy infrastructure projects that are related to the powerlink. Due to the significant and cumulative negative impacts these projects will have on the rural backcountry and communities that we want to protect, POC has determined that we need to address these issues through project research, official filing of comments, protest letters, and potential future legal action.
