Community Choice Power
Community Choice Energy (CCE) programs are starting up in the Bay Area and all over California, providing a way to get more clean, renewable energy into the grid faster than what investor-owned utilities can by themselves. Above you see the very recent opening of the very local “Novato Sol” 1mw solar farm in an old quarry in the City of Novato. We are here, in this campaign, supporting this process in whatever way we can. Through fighting all attempts by the utilities and their friends to alter policy at the CPUC that makes it more difficult for CCE’s and fighting against every effort they make in the state legislature to do the same thing, while championing those bills that assist CCE’s, we continue to support the efforts of the state to reach the goal of 50% carbon-free energy by 2025, 60% by 2030, and 100% by 2045, all set by passage of SB100 last year, and Greenhouse Gas Emissions (GHG) 40% below 1990 levels by 2030r as well as Governor Brown’s September 2018 Executive Order setting California’s goal of getting to carbon neutrality by at least 2045.
