Officially launched on March 1st, 2021, San Diego Community Power (SDCP) delivers customer choice for cleaner energy and competitive pricing. As one of California’s largest community choice aggregators (CCAs), SDCP joins 22 other successful programs throughout the state that are reforming power procurement in favor of transparency, accountability, and reliability. CCAs are local energy providers established by state law and managed by local elected officials and community representatives.
For the first time in our region’s history, families, businesses, and municipalities in Encinitas, La Mesa, Chula Vista, Imperial Beach, and San Diego have a future-focused choice in energy providers and a clear path to reach 100% renewable energy by 2035 or sooner.
Organized as a community-driven not-for-profit, SDCP is committed to investing back into local communities through job training, renewable energy development projects, and aid programs for communities of concern. While generating revenue in support of shareholder returns drives the incumbent investor-owned utility, SDCP is focused on clean technology innovation, creating local jobs, and energy programs supporting communities of concern.
“The launch of San Diego Community Power is a game-changer for customer choice, fighting climate change, and creating healthier and more equitable communities for future generations,” said Joe Mosca, Encinitas Councilmember and SDCP Board Chair. “We are excited to usher in a new era for San Diego communities and to do our part to reduce the impacts of climate change by providing greener energy options.”
