Alameda County, CA (November 9, 2017) – East Bay Community Energy (EBCE) has taken its next step in the path forward to begin serving clean electricity to commercial businesses and residents located in Alameda County. EBCE has announced that the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) has approved and certified its Implementation Plan.
“This is a critical step for us as we continue to move forward and serve customers in 2018,” says Nick Chaset, Chief Executive Officer for East Bay Community Energy. “We are grateful to the EBCE Board, County staff, and community for their support and hard work to build EBCE. We are excited to start serving our Alameda County community.”
The Community Choice Implementation Plan is a legal requirement for all Community Choice Energy (CCE) programs. EBCE submitted its Implementation Plan to the CPUC in August of this year. Following the required 90-day review period, CPUC has officially certified the plan.
Consistent with other CCEs across the State of California, EBCE’s objectives in implementing this program are to provide lower-cost electricity services, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and stimulate renewable energy development to name a few.
With the certification of its Implementation Plan complete, EBCE will now work with PG&E to access the key data streams necessary to support a planned 2018 launch. In the coming months, EBCE will focus on setting electricity rates before sending enrollment notices prior to enrolling its first customers in June 2018.
