Energy from Clean, Renewable Sources

At SDCP, we have a sharp focus on cleaner air for families today and future generations. That’s why we buy clean power from sources that are renewable and abundant. We contract for wind and solar power as part of our diversified power mix to ensure cleaner and reliable energy supply.

We’re committed to entirely clean and renewable electricity by 2035 or sooner – the first in the State to establish this goal in our foundation.

* SDCP will get our renewable power from solar, wind, and large hydro

Why it Matters

Competition in any field spurs the competitors on to better ideas, prices, and products, as they try to win customer loyalty. CCAs are being formed to introduce healthy competition to the electricity marketplace, which has operated as a monopoly for generations. SDCP is offering customers electricity program innovation: choices for smart products and services that are right for today, and will create a healthier tomorrow.

California Statewide Impact*

California communities from Humboldt County to Riverside have been launching CCA programs just like ours through the past decade, increasing the demand for renewable energy as customers commit to cleaner, greener power sources. We’ve already seen long-term power contract commitments for nearly 6,000 megawatts of new renewable energy as a direct result of these programs. As dozens of additional new CCA programs take shape across the state, those numbers will continue to skyrocket, impacting the fiscal and physical health of our communities.
