Testimony from Belmont ex-Mayor Pam Rianda on the CCA in Sonoma

In mid December I started with Sonoma Clean Power. It is a not for profit public agency, independently run by the cities of Cloverdale, Cotati, Petaluma, Santa Rosa, Sebastopol, Sonoma, Windsor and the County.  SCP buys cleaner power and partners with PG&E for delivery.

Residents get the same reliability with cleaner electricity at a lower price. The residents have had four opportunities to opt out or even to choose a premium Evergreen service for 100% local and renewable power.

My electric service now costs 5-8% less than PG&E’s service and has 30%lower greenhouse gas emissions. With my first month’s participation, we saved 23%.
