Renewable Energy in Piedmont?

– 100% Renewable Energy!  It’s your choice. Press release. –
*Neighborhood Meeting*  on Community Choice Aggregation (CCA)
CCA is the ‘public option’ for energy.  California law (AB 117) allows cities and counties to pool their constituents’ demand for energy and procure it from sources independent of the investor-owned utility (PG&E, in Piedmont’s case).
Piedmont residents and ratepayers could have substantially more renewable and competitively-priced energy options if we were to form or join a Community Choice Aggregation (CCA), as other Bay Area communities have done. Among other things, this would enable our community to achieve its Climate Action Plan (CAP) without substantial cost, or major lifestyle changes.
