Earlier this month, the City of La Cañada Flintridge hosted a town hall meeting to discuss its upcoming electricity provider shift from Southern California Edison (SCE) to Clean Power Alliance (CPA). The Clean Power Alliance is an electricity provider that specializes in renewable energy under the California Public Utility Commission’s (CPUC) Community Choice Aggregation program. Switching to CPA allows for residents to choose which electricity provider they want to use, CPA or SCE.
During the meeting, La Cañada Flintridge’s Clean Power Alliance representative, Dalia Gomez, covered Community Choice Aggregation, the difference in rates between SCE and CPA and the anticipated timeline of the switch to CPA. The town hall ended with a Q&A session, during which Dalia touched on procurement and delivery of renewable energy, availability of bill assistance for fixed income residents and the transition’s impact on those with rooftop solar panels.
La Cañada Flintridge’s transition to Clean Power Alliance is currently pending the California Public Utilities Commission’s approval, expected in March. Upon approval, City staff will continue outreach to residents and businesses regarding the transition.
