WHAT: Clean Power Alliance is launching its Local Programs Strategic Plan process with an inaugural workshop in Downtown Los Angeles. Eighty to one hundred community stakeholders across Los Angeles County are expected to come participate in an interactive workshop focused on energy and electrification measures. A second Ventura County based workshop in July and a tri-lingual online survey are also planned.
The innovative new electricity provider for 31 cities across Los Angeles and Ventura Counties, which launched in 2018 already has demonstrated a strong commitment to renewable energy and local control. Clean Power Alliance’s vision of a clean energy future also translates to developing future programs for the community now that the enrollment of approximately 1 million customers is nearly complete.
Following the trend of other statewide customer choice aggregation (CCA) utilities’ practice of reinvesting money back into customer programs, Clean Power Alliance has initiated a process to guide its future programmatic investments. The strategic plan will guide the next five years (2020-2025) of investment and include a six-month stakeholder engagement process and rigorous study of existing CCA and utility programs. Other CCAs have initiated customer programs that promote electrification of transportation and buildings, low-income solar incentives, and new rates that help promote conservation.
The intended outcome will be a transparent decision-making process and comparative tool for how to prioritize future programs that could save customers money while achieving community goals such as reducing greenhouse gas emissions and promoting climate resiliency, reaching underserved communities/customers, and creating jobs. Those interested in attending may RSVP here.
