City opts up to 100% clean energy
The City of La Mesa is taking action for its municipal accounts and opting up to San Diego Community Power’s (SDCP) 100 percent renewable Power100 program. SDCP, the not-for-profit community choice energy agency, provides clean, carbon-free, and cost-competitive energy to municipalities, commercial and industrial clients in the member cities of La Mesa, Chula Vista, Encinitas, Imperial Beach, and San Diego.
“This decision to opt-up to Power100 will go a long way towards helping the city achieve our ambitious greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction goals,” said La Mesa City Council member and SDCP Board member Bill Baber. The city climate action plan calls for community-wide GHG emission reductions of 53% by 2035.
SDCP began enrolling municipal customers on March 1, 2021, and commercial and industrial account holders on June 1, 2021. SDCP is now providing clean energy for nearly 72,000 commercial and industrial accounts representing nearly 60% of the forecast energy load. Residential service will begin to roll out in early 2022.
La Mesa residential customers will receive additional information before the launch via direct mail. When service launches, customers will continue to get the same single bill from SDG&E with a line item for electricity generation from SDCP, which replaces what SDG&E would have provided. SDG&E will continue to deliver power, customer service and provide ongoing system maintenance.
SDCP is a not-for-profit Community Choice Aggregator (CCA) that offers the following:
Customer-Driven Choice: CCAs were created to advocate for ratepayers by providing end-user choice and shifting control of local energy decisions into the hands of residents and businesses.
Future-Focused: SDCP offers tiered programs that provide cleaner energy for competitive rates, helping reach climate action goals and supporting healthier communities today and for the future.
Saving Money and the Environment: There are currently 23 successful CCAs operating in 200 communities around California. As the second largest in the state, SDCP provides the same reliable energy service as the local investor-owned utility but with cleaner, most sustainable energy.
- Local Management, Investment, and Jobs: As a locally controlled not-for-profit energy provider, SDCP supports economic vitality by investing in local renewable energy projects.
