Board of Directors

Our Board meets once a month and all meetings are open to the public. Visit the Public Meetings page for more information about the Board’s meetings.
The Board sets rates and determines the mix of power sources. You can view a copy of the final Joint Powers Authority agreement here (PDF).

Community Advisory Committee
The Community Advisory Committee (CAC) consists of nine members plus two alternates appointed by the Board of Directors. The committee acts as a liaison between key stakeholders and our Board, holding public committee meetings on a regular basis. Visit the Public Meetings page for more information about CAC meetings.
About the Community Advisory Committee
The Community Advisory Committee was formed in 2016 as part of the East Bay Community Energy Joint Powers Authority and appointed by the Board of Directors to advise the Board on all subjects related to the operations of the Community Choice Aggregation program. The CAC gives the community a voice in its choice for electricity services, clean energy resource investments, and local energy projects.
EBCE strives to ensure a diversity of members and alternates based on location, population, work experience, and community interest.
