USA, California: San Francisco Offers Renewable Energy Choices for Customers

San Francisco’s Community Choice Aggregation Program for Clean Energy Goes Online (Renewable Energy World)

San Francisco’s Community Choice Aggregation (CCA) program — CleanPowerSF — has arrived. First proposed in 1998, the program has been mired in conflicting agendas for almost two decades, mirroring the erratic evolution of the CCA movement as a whole over that same period of time. Now, finally, the program is online and serving 7,800 locations with a load of 40 MW. At full capacity, CleanPowerSF plans to deliver 400 MW of power to over 300,000 accounts.

On the website is this information: "CleanPowerSF will buy more of your electricity from California-certified renewable sources such as solar, wind, bioenergy, geothermal, and hydroelectric. Between 35% of CleanPowerSF’s default Green energy product will come from these renewable sources, while 100% of CleanPowerSF’s SuperGreen energy product will come from these sources."

"Long-term, a goal of CleanPowerSF is to invest ratepayer dollars to build new, renewable energy facilities in California and within and around San Francisco itself. This “build-out” will create local green jobs over the long-term."
