ENERGÍA LIMPIA

Tras el uso del modelo "Community Choice Energy"
3CE es capaz de obtener energía a precios competitivos para cumplir con sus objetivos climáticos y energéticos.

En nombre de la costa central, 3CE está liderando el camino hacia un futuro brillante al obtener 100% del suministro electrico via fuentes limpias y renovables para el año 2030. 15 años antes del objetivo estatal.

Camino hacia la energía 100% Limpia y Renovable

3CE ha adoptado un nuevo camino con el fin de acelerar el despliegue del suministro energético para promover el objetivo de reducir las emisiones de gases de efecto invernadero (GEI) de manera significativa y asequible. Con el apoyo de nuestra comunidad, 3CE aumentará sus contratos de suministro de energía a largo plazo para lograr el 60% de las ventas para el 2025 y el 100% de ecursos renovables para el 2030.

Con esta nueva estrategia, 3CE podrá reducir las emisiones de gases de efect invernadero a través de nuestra adquisición de energía en nombre de nuestros clientes, y reducirá las emisiones locales de gases de efecto invernadero a través de nuestros programas de energía centrados en la electrificación, el cambio de combustible. 3CE considera que nuestro camino hacia la energía 100% limpia y renovable para 2030 es un paso estratégico e impactante para complementar nuestros esfuerzos locales y abordar las emisiones regionales de gases de efecto invernadero. 3CE tiene una gran oportunidad de reducir emisiones a través del suministro de energía, que garantiza que los clientes y las comunidades puedan beneficiarse de tarifas asequibles a través de la electrificación a lo largo de la Costa Central.

En sus dos primeros años de funcionamiento, 3CE ha contratado 1.100 millones de dólares en proyectos de energía renovable y se espera que este número aumente significativamente. Energía 100% limpia y renovable para el año 2030 – 15 años antes del requisito estatal.

3CE has partnered with Silicon Valley Clean Energy (SVCE) for most of its renewable energy contracts to increase our buying power and extend the affordability of renewable energy to the communities we serve.

1.1 Billion

Invested in renewable energy and renewable storage contracts in our first two years of operation

3CE currently purchases a variety of renewable energy sources

Solar + storage – 3CE has contracted for new renewable solar projects to be built with accompanying battery storage. Storage helps intermittent renewable energy helps bring reliability to the grid by providing solar power late into the evening when demand for power is at its peak

Geothermal – 3CE has contracted for 73.7 Megawatts/yr. of energy through geothermal energy. This type of renewable energy is important to have in our power mix because it serves as a base load source or in other words, it produces consistent energy and it’s available 24/7/365

Battery storage – 3CE has contracted for 60 Megawatts of battery storage, to be retrofitted into an existing California Flats solar facility in Monterey County. This facility will capture existing renewable energy and help 3CE meet its obligation to purchase more than its maximum anticipated power needs helping to reduce California’s reliance on fossil fuels like natural gas as backup energy.

Supporting offshore wind: 3CE has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) agreement with Castle Wind, a company seeking to build a floating offshore wind project around 30 miles off the coast of Morro Bay. If Castle wind can move through the required process to build, 3CE has agreed to purchase at an affordable rate a portion of their anticipated 1,000 megawatts of renewable energy/yr under a long-term agreement. This project would help 3CE serve our local communities with renewable energy provided within its service territory while supporting local renewable infrastructure and jobs. This offshore wind project anticipates producing renewable wind power day and night.

Investigating cost-effective local resources: 3CE currently has a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Photosol who is currently evaluating a number of local utility scale renewable energy projects within 3CE’s service area which includes our 4 counties and 28 cities therein. Staff will also evaluate and possibly implement an ongoing RFO to evaluate offers from developers related to utility scale renewable energy generation within our service area.

Fuentes de energía

Se espera que la vía de 3CE hacia la energia 100% renovable aumente su inversión en contratos renovables a largo plazo.

3Cprime is 3CE’s 100% renewable service offering, with 50% solar and 50% wind. If you would like to support 100% renewable energy, 3Cprime costs less than one penny per kilowatt hour more (.8c/kwh more) than 3Cchoice. Would you like to opt up? Please visit the Account & Services tab.

3CE along with the other CCAs established our initial power mix in two ways:

En primer lugar, la adquisición de recursos renovables actualmente es 33% de la demanda de energía del 2020. Aumentara al 60% para 2030.
3CE adquiere créditos o atributos ambientales via fuentes hidroeléctricas con el fin de compensar las compras de energía que aparecen en su etiqueta de contenido de energía. Con el cambio de 3CE en depender de fuentes hidroeléctricas, traeremos nuevos recursos renovables a la red, junto con el almacenamiento para aumentar la confiabilidad a través de energía limpia y acelerar nuestro objetivo de reducir emisiones de gases de efecto invernadero.

La visión de 3CE para el futuro


We invite you on this journey to bring more renewable sources and energy storage online, reducing the need for fossil-fuel baseload sources of energy like natural gas. With $1.1 billion already invested in renewable and storage long-term contracts, 3CE is leading the charge to help accelerate the reduction of GHG emissions brought onto the western grid. Our pathway to 100% renewable energy is achievable in an affordable way. Rates for renewable energy are at an all-time low while demand for large hydro-electric attributes continues to increase. 3CE is responding to these market shifts in a fiscally and environmentally responsible way on behalf of the communities we serve. Thank you, your support electrifies our GHG reducing efforts!

How California's Energy Grid Works

On a localized scale, Central Coast Community Energy purchases clean energy as the primary electricity provider on our customer’s behalf while the utility provider continues to deliver electricity to the customer’s location. This partnership allows 3CE to focus on sourcing clean power while funding local electrification energy programs with the overarching goal of reducing both grid emissions and local emissions.

California's Grid and Grid Operator

California’s energy grid is powered by many different sources of energy including renewables such as solar, wind and geothermal, carbon-free sources such as large-hydro and fossil fuel sources such as natural gas. Currently on a typical day California’s energy grid is fueled by 50% natural gas, 25% renewables, 10% large hydro, 10% imports and 5% nuclear. Once energy sources enter the grid, the electrons are mixed together and delivered to locations close to the source; in other words, to locations with the least resistance.

Cuando se trata de la electricidad y de dónde viene, es importante tener en cuenta que debido a la naturaleza de los electrones, es casi imposible rastrear la electricidad desde su fuente hasta donde finalmente se utilice.

Esto es especialmente cierto cuando se considera el tamaño de la red occidental. 3CE suministra energía limpia y, por lo tanto, está limpiando la mezcla de energía de la región. It has become clear that the Community Choice Energy trend is poised to change the status quo and with combined efforts, facilitate the biggest push for clean power in the history of the state.

Who manages the grid? Customers have become more familiar with the California Independent Systems Operator (CAISO) following their Flex Alerts and calls for temporary rolling power outages during record-breaking heatwaves and heatstorms in 2020. CAISO is California’s grid operator, responsible for dispatching energy procured by utilities and CCAs like ours onto the grid in real time, balancing supply with demand and ensuring the power stays on for California.
