Clean Power Exchange (CPX) is a place to exchange news, information, and resources about clean energy and the Community Choice movement sweeping across California.
- Community Choice energy accelerates the adoption of renewables and strengthens local economies by shifting energy decision-making to local control.
- Community Choice fosters Energy Democracy by empowering community stakeholders to weigh in on energy issues that affect their lives. CPX provides the tools needed to make the shift to a local, clean energy economy.
Together, let’s create a future free of fossil fuels, where residents and businesses share the benefits of local, clean energy.
