CPA offers three products - Lean Power (36% Renewable), Clean Power (50% Renewable), and 100% Green Power (100% Renewable). Each member agency chooses its default, either for all accounts, or for residential or non-residential accounts.
The Lean Power product currently costs 1-2% less than SCE's base product, Clean Power is 0-1% less, and 100% Green Power is 7-9% more. For those agencies that choose the 100% default, low income CARE/FERA customers can receive the product at no additional cost.
To date, 11 cities have set their defaults at 100% Green Power. Those cities include: Culver City, Malibu, Ojai, Oxnard, Rolling Hills Estates (residential), Santa Monica, South Pasadena (residential), Thousand Oaks, Ventura, Ventura County, and West Hollywood.
Cities have the option to change their default. To go into effect in October 2020, cities have until April 1, 2020 to change their default. Beginning in 2021, default changes must be made by January 1 to go into effect that year.
