Oakland, Redwood City, Santa Clara, and Sunnyvale, Calif. – Three Bay Area Community Choice Energy agencies and one municipal utility are joining forces to ramp up efforts to help stabilize California’s electricity grid and provide reliable power. East Bay Community Energy, Peninsula Clean Energy, Silicon Valley Clean Energy, and Silicon Valley Power will announce a new program on November 5 to address the resiliency needs of our communities in the wake of multiple, on-going power shut offs and the threat of wildfires. The program will offer grid-stabilizing technology to provide power for thousands of homes and businesses in Alameda, San Mateo, and Santa Clara Counties, including those hit by recent PG&E power shutoffs.
The four public power agencies will be hosting a press event:
When: Tuesday, November 5 at 10 a.m. – 11 a.m.
What: Press event to discuss community resilience solutions enacted by a coalition of local public power providers
Where: Fremont Fire Station #6, 4355 Central Ave, Fremont, CA 94536 — the first fire station in the U.S. with a solar microgrid
