The Business of Local Energy Symposium 2017 – A Smashing Success

Leveraging the Local Benefits of Community Choice Energy

On May 5, 2017, about 400 people including elected officials, energy sector professionals, and advocates gathered in Long Beach for the Center for Climate Protection’s third annual Business of Local Energy Symposium. Co-organizers were the Local Government Commission and the Local Government Sustainability and Energy Coalition. Attendees heard 56 speakers and discussed California’s decentralized energy future. The theme was “It’s all about impact.” Click here for more details and media from the event.

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.
