Now is the time for Community Choice

This talk looks at a hand’s-on boot up of Community Choice Aggregation (CCA) that accelerates renewables and has the headroom for sharing Community Benefits. This talk is presented to you by Geof Syphers, the only CEO that Sonoma Clean Power (SCP) has known. Like Boulder, Santa Rosa was founded in the 1800s, is a county seat, home to a state university, victim to a suburban wildfire that claimed over 5500 homes, and subject to an Investor-owned Utility. SCP had Marin Clean Energy’s shoulders to stand on. Community Choice in Colorado has California’s and seven other states’ shoulders. By Community Benefits, we will reveal how CCAs are essential for financing climate mitigation and adaptation efforts. In Sonoma, this Community Benefit manifests as an Advanced Energy Rebuild program, the Advanced Energy Center, a Geothermal Opportunity Zone, GridSavvy, Bike Electric, EV charging, and procuring storage. And they are just getting warmed up.

Mr. Geof Syphers is the Chief Executive Officer of Sonoma Clean Power, a position he has held since the program’s inception in 2013. Under his leadership, SCP now serves 600,000 people throughout Sonoma and Mendocino counties with cleaner power at competitive rates.
