About Us

Clean Power Alliance believes in a clean energy future that is local, where communities are empowered and customers are given a choice about the source of their energy. We are Southern California’s locally operated electricity provider across Los Angeles and Ventura counties, offering clean renewable energy at competitive rates.

Clean Power Alliance serves approximately three million customers and one million customer accounts across 32 communities throughout Southern California including unincorporated Los Angeles County, unincorporated Ventura County and the cities of: Agoura Hills, Alhambra, Arcadia, Beverly Hills, Calabasas, Camarillo, Claremont, Carson, Culver City, Downey, Hawaiian Gardens, Hawthorne, Malibu, Manhattan Beach, Moorpark, Ojai, Oxnard, Paramount, Redondo Beach, Rolling Hills Estates, Santa Monica, Sierra Madre, Simi Valley, South Pasadena, Temple City, Thousand Oaks, Ventura, West Hollywood, Westlake Village and Whittier.

Clean Power Alliance purchases clean power and Southern California Edison (SCE) delivers it. SCE will continue to deliver power to your home or business, send one bill, and be responsible for resolving any issues with your electricity service.

Each member agency selected a default rate option to begin service. Click here to see your city's default. Although you will be automatically enrolled based on your community's choice, you will have the ability to change your rate at any time. No matter what offering you choose, you will soon enjoy the shared benefits of Clean Power Alliance including local control, stable rates, and higher renewable content.

The best part is: the choice is yours! For the first time, you now have a choice when it comes to your energy. Clean Power Alliance currently offers three rate options designed to suit the diverse needs of our communities. You will have the opportunity to choose the percentage of renewable content that suits your business or family best. No matter what offering you choose, our communities will enjoy the shared benefits of Clean Power Alliance.

Benefits
History

Clean Power Alliance was established in 2017 to provide cost competitive electric services, reduce electric sector greenhouse gas emissions, stimulate renewable energy development, implement distributed energy resources, promote energy efficiency and demand reduction programs, and sustain long-term rate stability for residents and businesses through local control. Originally established as a joint powers authority with unincorporated Los Angeles County, Rolling Hills Estates, and South Pasadena as founding members, we quickly grew to a coalition of 32 agencies across Los Angeles and Ventura Counties.
