BEVERLY HILLS—Residents and businesses in the city of Beverly Hills will be able to take advantage of clean, renewable power at competitive rates. Beginning in February 2019, the Clean Power Alliance will be the new electricity provider for the region.
According to a press release from the city of Beverly Hills, Clean Power Alliance is a public agency made up of 31 local governments across Los Angeles and Ventura counties that collaborate to bring clean, renewable power choices to communities. Clean Power Alliance purchases clean power and SCE sends it. SCE will continue to send one bill and will be responsible for resolving any issues with electricity service.
“We are excited to be part of this innovative opportunity to begin a new era of clean power distribution,” said Mayor Julian Gold. “Beverly Hills is committed to sustainability and this new enterprise allows our community to further champion the environment.”
Customers of Beverly Hills will automatically be enrolled in Clean Power Alliance’s Clean Power rate option, which offers 50 percent renewable content. With this option, bills will remain approximately the same or a smaller amount than SCE’s current rate at 35 percent Green. Customers can select options for Lean Power (36 percent) or Full Green Power (100 percent).
Customers who say special rates or programs in the past that included CARE, FERA, Medical Baseline, Level Pay or Summer Discounts will still have access to those discounts.
According to the Clean Power Alliance website, CPA will purchase clean power and Southern California Edison (SCE) will deliver it. Clean Power Alliance offers three new, competitively-priced options for electricity, and reinvests funds back into the community. Residents and business can choose the option that best suits their needs, and learn how ways to save money and go green.
Customers in Beverly Hills will receive a total of four notices via postal mail before and after the switch from SCE to Clean Power Alliance for electricity generation. Service for residential customers will start in February 2019, and customers will receive their first notice in December 2018. Clean Power Alliance service for non-residential customers is scheduled to start in May 2019.
