Community Advisory Committee

Our Community Advisory Committee is helping guide Southern California’s energy future!

Clean Power Alliance has a dedicated Community Advisory Committee (CAC) comprised of customers who are leaders in their communities to advise our Board of Directors on policies, programs, and planning, while also serving as customer advocates. Our 15-member CAC represents 7 sub-regions of our service territory. CAC members come from a diverse cross-section of community and professional backgrounds. CAC meetings are open to the public every 3rd Thursday from 1:00-2:30 p.m.
