Clean POWER ALLIANCE
Enjoy the advantages of clean, renewable power at competitive rates.
Clean Power Alliance will purchase clean power and Southern California Edison (SCE) will deliver it. Nothing else changes. Clean Power Alliance offers three competitively-priced options for your electricity, all cleaner than what Edison provides, and also reinvests funds back into the community.
- Clean Power Alliance is a locally controlled electricity provider in Southern California including Malibu and 30 other communities.
- Edison still delivers the power over their lines and wires and continues to charge a fee for that service.
- There will be no duplication of fees because the fees are for different types of services.
- Citizens and business can choose the percentage of clean energy delivered: 36%, 50%, or 100%.
- See what your bill could look like with different Clean Power Alliance and Southern California Edison (SCE) service offerings using the calculator tool.

The passage of Assembly Bill (AB) 32, the California Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006, marked a watershed moment in California's history. By requiring in law a sharp reduction of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, California set the stage for its transition to a sustainable, low-carbon future. AB 32 was the first program in the country to take a comprehensive, long-term approach to addressing climate change, and does so in a way that aims to improve the environment and natural resources while maintaining a robust economy.
