CPA Staff and Board Members Attend Sacramento Lobby Day  

CPA Happenings

Recently, Clean Power Alliance (CPA) attended our annual lobby day, with our CEO Ted Bardacke attending meetings in Sacramento along with CPA Board members Director Deborah Klein Lopez (Agoura Hills), Director Cedric Hicks (Carson), and Director John Erickson (West Hollywood).   

As demand grows for solutions that address the worsening impact of climate change as well as the need for energy reliability and affordability, CPA continues to play our part by advocating for and making substantial investments in renewable power sources and projects that will strengthen California’s green energy portfolio and meet long-term sustainability goals, while launching new energy- and cost-saving programs for local customers.  

This lobby day was a part of a statewide advocacy effort with other Community Choice Aggregators (CCA’s) from across the state, along with members of our trade association, the California Community Choice Association (CalCCA).   

CPA met with legislators representing West Los Angeles, the Gateway cities, Los Angeles County and Ventura County, as well as with legislative leadership including the Senate pro Tempore and the Governor’s office.   

CPA informed legislators of CPA’s recent accomplishments, learned about the legislator’s top clean energy priorities for the coming year, and discussed some of the key energy issues facing the state.    

In March, CPA will travel to Washington, D.C., with several California CCAs, for our first ever federal lobby day. CPA will meet with members of the California congressional delegation to highlight CPA’s activities in their local communities and clean energy programs and achievements. CPA will also learn more about and pursue federal funding opportunities that support clean energy programs and projects across the state.
