Clean Energy Alliance launches May 1

The Coast News

On May 1, a new energy service launches for residents of Carlsbad, Del Mar and Solana Beach.

Residents in each city are automatically enrolled in the Clean Energy Alliance, although most customers, including most businesses, will not start their service until after their May billing cycle with San Diego Gas & Electric, according to Barbara Boswell, interim executive director of the CEA.

CEA is a Community Choice Aggregation program designed to bring renewable and clean energy to help the state meet its climate goals.

“When a customer switches from SDG&E to CEA, there is no change to them in their electricity,” Boswell said. “Their energy is coming from what we’ve procured and their billing will be at our rates.”

All three cities approved the Clean Impact Plus product, a 50% renewable energy and 75% carbon-free product, which will save customers 0.9% compared to SDG&E for 2021, Boswell said. CEA will save customers 2% on generation costs compared to SDG&E.
