We provide clean electricity across Los Angeles and Ventura counties at competitive rates.

We give communities access to the power of choice, as well as green energy at competitive prices. Our local-first approach benefits communities on the ground-level: environmentally and economically. And because we are not-for-profit, our revenues are reinvested back into the communities we serve through programs and scholarships that benefit the people who need it most.

3 million customers have chosen sustainable
electricity with CPA

We partner with local leaders to help bring access to clean power to everyone in Southern California. 32 communities across Los Angeles and Ventura counties have opted for clean power through CPA.

    Local leadership helps us better meet the needs of each community we serve.

    We strive to make renewable energy affordable for everyone.


    We have a low-carbon option for everyone, keeping the planet clean for a brighter future.

    We were established in 2017 to meet the need for local clean power and to fulfill the following goals:

    • Provide cost competitive electricity supply
    • Reduce greenhouse gas emissions from the electricity sector
    • Stimulate renewable energy development
    • Implement distributed energy resources
    • Promote energy efficiency and demand reduction programs
    • 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. Clean Power Alliance is governed by a Board of Directors that includes an elected official from each of the communities we serve.
