“This will allow South Bay Clean Power constituents to have full transparency and oversight into every power plant the CCA will contract with, and how all aspects of its power operations will be conducted. A practice which goes above and beyond of current utility operations.”

“The South Bay Clean Power (SBCP) Business Plan clearly explains why a Distributed Energy Resources-centric (DER) Community Choice Aggregation (CCA) is essential to achieving the local jobs and economic investment… it shows sequential steps which evidence not only the desire for good green jobs but more important, the road map to achieve same. Without this level of commitment to DER as a top priority, neither SBCP, nor any CCA could achieve our stated mutual goals and objectives. Moreover, this commitment is essential to grid stability, community resiliency and security.”
