The California Public Utilities Commission officially recognized CleanPowerSF as a registered “Community Choice Aggregator in the State of California” last week, a major step in the power company’s push to develop new possibilities for clean energy.
A negotiated service agreement with Pacific Gas & Electric Corp. was also approved by the commission. The agreement will govern the relationships between CleanPowerSF and PG&E.
The recognition comes after PG&E agreed to allow a new San Francisco competitor, Power Choice, to use its power lines and other local infrastructure.
Supervisor Ross Mirkarimi, Chair of the Local Agency Formation Commission, said the move allows San Francisco to “enter an era of new possibilities for developing a clean-green energy future.”
The San Francisco Public Utilities Commission and LAFCo will continue to meet daily with the PG&E to finalize contract terms and customer rates. A proposed contract is expected to be released June 8.
