Starting in February, the Clean Power Alliance will purchase 100% Green Power for Santa Monica’s residential customers to significantly reduce our carbon emissions (transition for commercial customers is this summer). Southern California Edison (SCE) will deliver the power purchased by the Clean Power Alliance and continue to provide customer bills and resolve electricity-related service issues.
Watch this video to learn more about the Clean Power Alliance:
The Clean Power Alliance will offer three tier-rate options:
- 100% Green Power (7-9% increase compared to SCE),
- 50% Clean Power (0-1% discount compared to SCE), or
- 36% Lean Power (1% discount compared to SCE).
If you feel that 100% Green Power is not for you, the Clean Power Alliance offers 50% Clean Power and 36% Lean Power at prices that are competitive with SCE. You can also stay with SCE, but we hope you stick with the Clean Power Alliance. All California Alternate Rates for Energy (CARE) customers will receive 100% Green Power and their low-income discounts, just as before with no net increase to their bills.
