“We are flipping the switch on San Diego Community Power and finally bringing a future-focused energy choice and a clear path to 100% renewable energy,” Mayor Todd Gloria said at the official launch on March 1st, 2021. “This launch is an essential next step in meeting our regional climate action goals. By embracing renewable energy sources, we are going to protect San Diego for generations to come.”
Delivering on its promise to reinvest in renewable energy development, San Diego Community Power recently announced its first power purchase agreement with an affiliate of RAI Energy International, Inc. Located nearby in Imperial County, the Vikings Farm project will provide a 20-year supply of solar energy and battery storage.
“We are here to advocate for ratepayers, drive economic vitality, and support clean energy jobs for local workers,” said Serge Dedina, Imperial Beach Mayor and SDCP Board member. “Clean technology already provides more jobs in the region than all coal-related jobs in the country, and we want to see that trend grow.”
SDCP is now preparing to launch commercial and residential service on June 1st, 2021 and is forecast to provide energy to more than 70,000 commercial and industrial accounts of all sizes in the region. SDCP has received a warm welcome from area businesses eager to meet corporate responsibility and sustainability goals with a competitively priced service.
