Clean Power Alliance, Locally powered energy innovation.

The City of Culver City is proud to be a member of Clean Power Alliance!

Culver City is excited to announce that our community will soon enjoy the advantages of clean, renewable power at competitive rates! Starting in February 2019 for residential customers and May 2019 for non-residential customers, Clean Power Alliance will be the new electricity provider for our community.

As part of our commitment to protecting the environment and building resiliency, Culver City has chosen 100% Green Power as the default option for our community, which provides 100% renewable energy content and gives residents and businesses the opportunity to join us in being environmental champions leading the way to a greener future. Because we’re also committed to equity, customers enrolled in discount programs such as CARE and FERA will be enrolled in 100% Green Power but charged the same rates as they were previously paying to Southern California Edison (SCE), and therefore will see no bill impact while participating in the green economy.

The best part is: the choice is yours! 100% Green Power will be the default selection for our residents and businesses, but we understand the diverse needs of our community so if you decide 100% Green Power is not the best fit, you can change your service by selecting one of Clean Power Alliance’s other two rate options: Lean Power, which provides 36% renewable content at the lowest possible cost, and Clean Power, which provides 50% renewable content and the opportunity to support building a cleaner future. For more information contact Clean Power Alliance at customerservice@cleanpoweralliance.org or 888-585-3788.

Clean Power Alliance offers three rate options designed to suit the diverse needs of our community:

 Lean Power  Clean Power  100% Green Power

 Provides 36% renewable content at the lowest possible cost—with the added benefit of local management and control. Our community has selected Lean Power as our default option.

  • Stable, Competitive Rates
  • Higher Renewable Content

What is Clean Power Alliance?

Clean Power Alliance is a nonprofit entity, formed through a Joint Powers Authority (JPA) made up of 31 public agencies across Los Angeles and Ventura counties—including Culver City—working together to bring clean, renewable power choices to our communities.

On December 11, 2017 the City of Culver City voted to join Clean Power Alliance to bring the power of choice to our community. Vice Mayor Meghan Sahli-Wells represents the City of Culver City on the Clean Power Alliance Board of Directors and when unavailable, Council Member Daniel Lee is her alternate.

How does it work?

Clean Power Alliance will purchase clean power and Southern California Edison (SCE) will deliver it.

Nothing else changes—SCE will continue to deliver power to your home or business, send one bill, and be responsible for resolving any issues with your electricity service.

How it works - Clean Power Alliance buys electricity, SCE delivers energy, maintains lines, bills customers.  You benefit from competitive rates, local control, and cleaner energy.

What changes and what stays the same?

Stays the Same  New
 SCE delivery & grid reliability  Competitive pricing
 SCE billing  Choice of energy providers
 SCE account services  Higher renewable content
 SCE rebates & incentives  Lower greenhouse gas emissions
 Call SCE to start or stop service  Local management & control
 Receive one bill each month  Shape future incentives & programs

What comes next?

As Clean Power Alliance begins to offer service, customers will receive a total of four notices via mail before and after the switch from SCE to Clean Power Alliance. The first notice is scheduled to be distributed in December 2018. You don’t have to do anything when you receive these notices; you will automatically begin receiving the benefits of Clean Power Alliance service in 2019. However, the notices will give you information about your new energy choices, including how to make changes to your account and customer support contact information.

Once you receive your first notice, you can also choose not to take advantage of all the benefits Clean Power Alliance has to offer and elect to opt out without penalty, and your electricity generating charges will remain with SCE—but we hope you will join us in enjoying the advantages of clean, renewable power at competitive rates!
