South Bay 350 Climate Action Group is a coalition of families, businesses, community organizations, environmental groups, elected officials and staff working together to address the impacts of climate change and our responses to them in order to preserve and protect our coastal home. We have been integral in helping to create the Hermosa Beach Carbon Neutral City initiative, the creation of the South Bay Bicycle Coalition, the Manhattan Beach MB2025 vision for 100% renewable energy by 2025, and the South Bay Clean Power initiative.
Our driving mission is to help facilitate the rapid transition from fossil fuels to 100% renewable energy.
Climate Action Santa Monica empowers people to learn about climate change, locally and beyond, and encourages them to use their talents, habits and passion to help Santa Monica become a carbon-neutral and resilient community.

A Response to an Urgent Need:
Our dependence on conventional energy sources is causing multiple global crises. Key to resolving these problems is changing how we get and use energy. Transitioning from finite and polluting energy sources to efficiently implemented, clean, renewable energy sources is needed to carry civilization into a more secure future. It is, therefore, not a question of if 100% renewable energy will become a reality; it is a question of when, how, and who will lead and profit. These are critical questions the Renewables 100 Policy Institute is helping to address.
On November 1, 1911, 75 Sierra Club members gathered in downtown Los Angeles to sign a petition calling for the creation of a “Southern California Section,” the first local chapter in the history of the organization that John Muir founded in San Francisco in 1892.
Today, the Sierra Club Angeles Chapter covers Los Angeles and Orange counties and includes 16 regional groups (organized by geographical area) and 27 outdoor activity sections and committees (organized by interest). Chapter coordination and oversight is provided by an elected volunteer Executive Committee; the chapter also employs 5 staff who work with volunteer leaders to advance its priorities.
GRID Alternatives vision is a transition to clean, renewable energy that includes everyone. Our mission is to make renewable energy technology and job training accessible to underserved communities.
GRID Alternatives was founded during the 2001 California energy crisis by Erica Mackie, P.E., and Tim Sears, P.E., two engineering professionals who were implementing large-scale renewable energy and energy efficiency projects for the private sector. The vision that drove them was simple: free, clean electricity from the sun should be available to everyone. Through GRID Alternatives, they developed a model to make solar PV technology practical and accessible for low-income communities that need the savings and jobs the most, yet have the least access. By taking a broader approach to solar as not just an environmental good but also a real-world solution to a real-world economic problem in these communities, GRID Alternatives is helping to set the stage for large-scale solar adoption nationwide.
