Because We’re All in this Together

Our mission is to address climate change by reducing energy related greenhouse gas emissions through renewable energy supply and energy efficiency at stable and competitive rates for customers while providing local economic and workforce benefits.

Why renewable? To help solve a critical issue that affects us all. Renewables come from constantly replenishing a virtually limitless supply of natural resources. Think sun, wind, tides, bioenergy and geothermal heat. By turning to these sources instead of fossil fuels, we can help create a clean and secure energy future for California.
