CLEAN POWER ALLIANCE

Since launching service to its first accounts in February 2018, CPA has grown to provide electricity to nearly 3 million people across Southern California. In addition to Temple City, other San Gabriel Valley cities partnering with the alliance include Arcadia, Alhambra, Sierra Madre and South Pasadena.

The premise is simple: CPA will purchase cleaner, more competitively priced energy but deliver it to communities using existing lines and wires owned by Southern California Edison, or SCE.

Meanwhile SCE, which currently provides electricity to all Temple City households and businesses, will maintain its electrical delivery systems. The company will also continue to meter customers’ use of electricity and generate and distribute regular invoices.

Through the city’s CPA membership, Temple City residents and businesses will have access to three tiers of renewable energy. The default option selected by the City Council, Lean Power, offers 36 percent renewable energy at a cost estimated to be 1 to 2 percent cheaper than SCE’s standard base tier, which most Temple Citians are currently enrolled in.
