Community Advisory Committee

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

Clean Power Alliance, like other Community Choice Aggregation (CCA) utilities has created a 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 helping do customer outreach. As shown below, our 15-member advisory committee represents each of 7 sub-regions of our service territory. Committee members represent a diverse cross-section of community representatives, not just energy experts.

We are currently seeking applications from two interested community members from the South Bay and Unincorporated Los Angeles County to serve on our Community Advisory Committee that will help inform our growth and clean energy future. Scroll down for the application.

Community Advisory Committee meetings are open to the public and every second Thursday from 1-2:30pm. Click the "Access Agendas and Minutes" button to see the next date and agenda.
