CalCCA Webinar: A Sweeter Deal – Making Social Impacts Count in Power Purchasing

January 29 @ January 29 - January 29

Topic: A Sweeter Deal: Making Social Impacts Count in Power Purchasing

Date: January 29 @Noon


Community choice energy providers are playing an increasingly significant role in meeting California’s renewable energy and greenhouse gas reduction goals. They are the main drivers of new clean energy procurement in California, having signed long-term power purchase agreements totaling more than 6,000 megawatts with new-build solar, wind, geothermal and energy storage facilities. As CCAs continue to rapidly secure the clean energy resources California needs to meet ambitious decarbonization and climate change goals, they are also leveraging power purchasing to deliver additional benefits to their customers and to residents in the communities where clean energy projects are built. This webinar focuses on the steps San Francisco’s community choice energy provider, CleanPowerSF, is taking to consider positive local benefits in the power procurement process, in collaboration with their contracting partners.
