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.

EBCE is on a path to provide 100% carbon-free electricity to all customers by 2030. Some of EBCE’s member cities have taken the bold action of transitioning customers in their jurisdiction onto 100% renewable energy service immediately, to accelerate the reduction of emissions and hasten the investment in wind, solar, and battery storage projects.
