Monterey Bay Community Power Will Start Enrolling in Summer (Goodtimes)
Monterey Bay Community Power (MBCP), a new group, aims to launch next spring as a green alternative to Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E).
Both the Santa Cruz City Council and the county Board of Supervisors officially signed on to MBCP, the tri-county Community Choice Energy (CCE) partnership, in late February. The agreement brings together local governments with ones from San Benito and Monterey counties.
“At some point, MBCP can choose to be an owner of plants or continue to purchase from renewable projects,” says Virginia Johnson, the project manager for MBCP. “In Southern California, we are overloaded with solar systems throughout the state. There are plenty of places to buy renewably generated power for our program.”
