The Community Choice Energy Working Group of the Berkeley Climate Action Coalition advocates for the establishment of an Alameda County Community Choice program, in which the City of Berkeley would participate.
What is Community Choice Energy?
In the spring of 2016, Alameda County completed a feasibility study — the first step towards creating a viable program. In the fall of 2016, the County Board of Supervisors will vote on the formation of East Bay Community Energy. Community Choice programs in California are already serving residents in San Francisco, Lancaster, Sonoma County, Marin County, Napa County, and portions of Contra Costa and Solano counties. Programs in San Mateo and Los Angeles counties will launch later in 2106. From northern to southern California, Community Choice campaigns are underway in over 20 communities including Humboldt, Mendocino, San Jose, Santa Clara, Santa Cruz, Monterey, San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara, Riverside, and San Diego, among others.
