Clean, Renewable Energy Comes to MB

City of Manhattan Beach Announces Launch of Clean Power Alliance

Post Date:12/14/2018 2:22 PM

Manhattan Beach, CA, (December 13, 2018) - The City of Manhattan Beach is proud to announce that our community will soon enjoy the advantages of clean, renewable power at competitive rates. On December 19, 2017, the City of Manhattan Beach voted to join the Clean Power Alliance. Starting in February 2019, Clean Power Alliance will be the new electricity provider for our community. 

Clean Power Alliance is a public agency made up of 31 local governments across Los Angeles and Ventura counties ー including the City of Manhattan Beach ー working together to bring clean, renewable power choices to our communities. Clean Power Alliance purchases clean power and SCE delivers it--nothing else changes. SCE will continue to send just one bill, and be responsible for resolving any issues with electricity service.

Residents will not have to do anything to be automatically enrolled in Clean Power Alliance’s Clean Power rate option, which provides 50% renewable content and the opportunity to support building a cleaner future. Customers will also be able to make their own energy choice by selecting one of Clean Power Alliance’s other two rate options: Lean Power, which provides 36% renewable content at the lowest possible cost, and 100% Green Power, which provides 100% renewable content and gives customers the opportunity to be an environmental champion. No matter the rate option, Clean Power Alliance offers the shared benefits of local management and control, stable, competitive rates, and higher renewable energy content. 

Customers who have enjoyed special rates or programs in the past, such as CARE, FERA, Medical Baseline, Level Pay or Summer Discounts, will still have access to these programs and discounts. Clean Power Alliance will also develop new and unique programs exclusively for local customers.

Customers in the City of Manhattan Beach will receive a total of four notices via mail before and after the switch from SCE to Clean Power Alliance for electricity generation. Service for residential customers will begin in February 2019, and customers will receive their first notice in December 2018 which will contain additional details, including instructions on how to choose a different rate option and customer support contact information. Clean Power Alliance service for non-residential customers is scheduled to begin in May 2019.
