Join the Berkeley Climate Action Coalition, the David Brower Center, Ecology Center, and City of Berkeley at a panel discussion on Community Choice Energy. Learn about Alameda County’s plans to create a non-profit Community Choice Energy program with the potential to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, create green jobs and provide stable electricity rates for Berkeley and other Alameda County communities. We’ll hear from panelists with experience in creating existing Community Choice programs in Sonoma and Marin Counties that offer an alternative to PG&E.
