Op-ed: Bay Area CCAs are fighting the real blackout culprit — climate change

Three local elected officials and board members of Community Choice Aggregators (CCAs) – Santa Clara County Supervisor Susan Ellenberg, San Jose Vice Mayor Chappie Jones, and San Mateo County Supervisor Dave Pine – wrote an op-ed on September 2 about the importance of investing in renewable energy and battery storage technologies to fight climate change, the real cause of August’s rolling blackouts.

Bay Area CCAs are taking comprehensive action to achieve our climate goals and improve local resilience. While our agencies were formed to serve our local communities, we are also working on solutions to help transition to a cleaner, more reliable power grid statewide.

Learn more about these solutions by reading the op-ed.
