100% Green Power is in South Pasadena

The City of South Pasadena is proud to be a member of Clean Power Alliance!

We are excited to announce that our community will soon enjoy the advantages of clean, renewable power at competitive rates! Starting in February 2019 for residential customers and May 2019 for non-residential customers, Clean Power Alliance will be the new electricity provider for our community.

As part of our commitment to protecting the environment and building resiliency, South Pasadena has chosen to select 100% Green Power as the default option for our community, which provides 100% renewable energy content and gives residents and businesses the opportunity to join us in being environmental champions leading the way to a greener future. Because we’re also committed to equity, customers enrolled in discount programs such as CARE and FERA will be enrolled in 100% Green Power but charged the same rates as they were previously paying to Southern California Edison (SCE), and therefore will see no bill impact while participating in the green economy.

The best part is: the choice is yours!  100% Green Power will be the default selection for our residents and businesses, but we understand the diverse needs of our community so if you decide 100% Green Power is not the best fit, you can change your service by selecting one of Clean Power Alliance’s other two rate options: Lean Power, which provides 36% renewable content at the lowest possible cost, and Clean Power, which provides 50% renewable content and the opportunity to support building a cleaner future.

For more information visit or contact Clean Power Alliance at or 888-585-3788.

Clean Power Alliance offers three rate options designed to suit the diverse needs of our community:

What is Clean Power Alliance?

Clean Power Alliance ( is a nonprofit entity, formed through a Joint Powers Authority (JPA) made up of 31 public agencies across Los Angeles and Ventura counties—including South Pasadena ]—working together to bring clean, renewable power choices to our communities.

How does it work?

Clean Power Alliance will purchase clean power and Southern California Edison (SCE) will deliver it.

Nothing else changes—SCE will continue to deliver power to your home or business, send one bill, and be responsible for resolving any issues with your electricity service.

What changes and what stays the same?

What comes next?

As Clean Power Alliance begins to offer service, customers will receive a total of four notices via mail before and after the switch from SCE to Clean Power Alliance. The first notice is scheduled to be distributed in December 2018. You don’t have to do anything when you receive these notices; you will automatically begin receiving the benefits of Clean Power Alliance service in 2019. However, the notices will give you information about your new energy choices, including how to make changes to your account and customer support contact information.

Once you receive your first notice, you can also choose not to take advantage of all the benefits Clean Power Alliance has to offer and elect to opt out without penalty, and your electricity generating charges will remain with SCE—but we hope you will join us in enjoying the advantages of clean, renewable power at competitive rates!
