An upbeat ceremony was staged Thursday in Santa Cruz to commemorate the launch of Monterey Bay Community Power’s residential service in Santa Cruz, San Benito and Monterey counties.
The launch is the second phase of MBCP’s 100 percent renewable electrical service while in March the same company began offering renewable energy to commercial, agriculture and industrial companies in the same tri-county area.
“We are here to recognize the residential service launch of our program,” said Bruce McPherson, Santa Cruz County Supervisor and MBCP Policy Board chairman. “Now we are going to serving more 750,000 residents in our tri-county area. This is the most significant public service operation that I have been associated with in my public service life.” MBCP is the first agency of its type in California to launch as a tri-county operation including counties of Santa Cruz, San Benito and Monterey and 16 cities.
