WHAT'S THIS ABOUT?
Clean Power Alliance (CPA) is a newly formed community choice energy provider serving Los Angeles and Ventura Counties. It will serve approximately one million customers across 31 communities including unincorporated Los Angeles County, unincorporated Ventura County, and the cities of Agoura Hills, Alhambra, Arcadia, Beverly Hills, Calabasas, Camarillo, Claremont, Carson, Culver City, Downey, Hawaiian Gardens, Hawthorne, Malibu, Manhattan Beach, Moorpark, Ojai, Oxnard, Paramount, Redondo Beach, Rolling Hills Estates, Santa Monica, Sierra Madre, Simi Valley, South Pasadena, Temple City, Thousand Oaks, Ventura, West Hollywood, and Whittier.
Services for residential customers is scheduled to begin in February 2019 and May 2019 for commercial customers. When this happens, everyone will be given the choice between three levels of renewable energy: 36%, 50%, and 100%.
If you don't take any action, you will be provided with the default level of renewable energy, and this default level is chosen by your city leaders! Studies have shown that people are much more likely to stay at the default level than choose another option. This means that choosing a 100% default level of renewable energy is an extremely powerful tool to help us in the fight against climate change.
WHAT CAN I DO?
Email your city council.
Speak up in person.
Get a petition going.
The best way you can contribute is to reach out to your city council or county supervisors and tell them that you want the Clean Power Alliance 100% renewable energy default. The easiest way to do this is to send an email, but it makes more of an impact to show up in person at a meeting!
