Clean and Renewable Energy

Clean energy provides a range of benefits from improving the health and security of our communities to creating more jobs in clean energy and technology industries.

The City continues to consider ways to increase the use of renewable energy to reach 100 percent citywide in 2035. One option is through a Community Choice Aggregation (CCA). CCAs give residents and businesses an opportunity to choose who will purchase energy on their behalf, either the CCA or the incumbent utility, and the renewable content of their electricity.

See below for information related to the City’s research on other programs.
