Clean Energy

Building a Cleaner, More Reliable Grid 

Together with our customers, CCCE is addressing our state’s most urgent energy needs by supporting NEW solar, geothermal, and wind generation, as well as new energy storage resources. Rather than relying on existing renewable energy generation, CCCE has made long-term commitments to new projects for maximum impact. 

Balancing Large-Scale Impact with Local Generation and Storage 

In-sourcing clean and renewable electricity on behalf of our roughly 435,000 customers, CCCE makes large-scale contributions to greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reduction. At the local level, CCCE is contracting with local energy developers to improve local energy, create jobs, and support economic development. 

CCCE has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the 1,000 MWs Castle Wind project off Morro Bay in San Luis Obispo County. If approved, this project would have a profound local and statewide impact on job creation, new renewable energy resources, energy storage, and more. Keep up with the proposed Castle Wind Project. 

Electrification – Rebates to Make the Switch from Gas Power to Electric Power 

CCCE customers can access money-saving Energy Programs that further reduce GHG emissions locally. By switching your transportation, home, or workplace from gas-powered energy to all-electric power, households and businesses can save money and reduce emissions.

100X2030 – CCCE’s Pathway to 100% Clean and Renewable Energy by 2030 

Together with our customers, CCCE is on a pathway to achieving 60% clean and renewable energy by 2025 and 100% clean and renewable energy by 2030 – 15 years ahead of California’s mandate for zero emissions. Along the way, by having local control over our region’s electricity needs, deploying innovative energy solutions, and being responsive to the unique needs of our diverse Central Coast community, CCCE is powering economic and environmental benefits for our customers, communities and our planet.
