As the largest Community Choice Aggregator (CCA) and fifth-largest load serving entity in California, Clean Power Alliance of Southern California (CPA) is uniquely positioned to leverage the collective commitment of the local leaders of its diverse service territory to develop a new way to procure and provide electricity services.
CPA has been at the forefront of climate change mitigation through rapidly greening its customers’ energy supply, while providing choice and helping local communities fast-track their sustainability goals by offering renewable energy at competitive rates.
Following the launch of mass enrollment over the course of 2019 and 2020, CPA now serves more than one million residential and commercial customer accounts across 32 diverse jurisdictions in Los Angeles and Ventura counties. CPA provides 100% renewable energy to more than three hundred thousand customers, more than any other provider in the nation.
Approximately 27% of CPA customers receive financial assistance on their electricity bills through the statewide California Alternate Rates for Energy (CARE), Family Energy Rates Assistance (FERA), or Medical Baseline programs. Through CPA Board direction, these customers who live in communities that chose 100% renewable energy as their default rate product receive green energy at no added cost.
CPA has secured 1,330 megawatts (MW) of renewable energy resources and 715 MW of new battery storage, making CPA the third largest purchaser of storage in California as well as a significant contributor to the development of a clean and reliable grid.
