2019 Brings New Green Energy Program and More Flexibility
Return to full list >>
You will soon be able to choose greener energy without changing your provider, through the City's participation in the Clean Power Alliance (CPA). It's one way our region is working to provide more clean power options for residents and businesses.
How does it work?
The CPA delivers renewable energy through the City's existing provider, Southern California Edison. You can control your percentage of green energy, or go with 100% for the greatest environmental benefit.
Do I have to take any action?
- Do nothing, and 100% of your energy will come from renewable sources. This is best for the environment and may increase your electrical bill about 7-9%.
- Select the 50% clean option and your bill should remain about the same.
- Select the 36% clean option for a 1-2% decrease in your bill.
Will my bill look different?
- The CPA generates renewable energy and delivers it through your existing provider, which for Thousand Oaks is Southern California Edison.
- Southern California Edison (SCE) will continue to deliver power, send you an SCE bill, and resolve any electrical service issues.
- You will see a new line item on your bill for CPA, this represents the cost to generate clean energy and replaces an SCE fee.
How do I make my selection?
- Those selecting the Green option don't need to take any action. You will automatically switch to 100% renewable sources in February of 2019.
- If you want to select another option, or change your preference, visit The CPA website for instructions.
Where can I find more information?
