The East Bay is leading the transition to clean power.

Our communities launched a public power agency in 2018 to provide greener energy, low rates, and local community benefits.

We buy power mainly from clean sources like hydropower, wind, and solar and help East Bay residents and businesses save millions of dollars every year.
