The California Alliance for Community Energy, the statewide Community Choice Aggregation coalition has strongly endorsed the South Bay Clean Power draft business plan:

CACE on SBCP Plan_6-21-17

The mission of the California Alliance for Community Energy (CACE) is to support and defend Community Choice Energy programs in California that advance local clean energy for the environmental and economic benefit of our communities.

The CACE steering committee includes Community Choice Power expert advocates who are leading local CCA efforts from the Bay Area to San Diego.

Members of the California Alliance for Community Energy are advocates and supporters committed to developing local renewable energy resources and clean energy jobs through Community Choice energy programs. The Alliance provides a forum for respectful and productive discourse among a diverse group of stakeholders to: build relationships, share resources, educate each other about issues and challenges, and organize against threats.


Congratulations Calabasas & L.A. County!

20 months after we introduced the topic of CCA in the City of Calabasas, that City at the far eastern edge of Los Angeles County has become the very first member of the new Los Angeles Community Choice Energy program and we could not be happier!

Special recognition has to go to Alan Weiner the leader of 350 Conejo/San Fernando Valley who organized that first workshop at the Calabasas Library on October 22 in 2015. South Bay Clean Power Working Group Chair, Joe Galliani, traveled to the City to present a briefing and answer questions on Community Choice Aggregation to city staff and interested parties from that City, Agoura Hills, and Westlake Village covered in the local Acorn newspaper.
