The Grover Beach City Council is considering an energy plan that could potentially save customers hundreds of thousands of dollars.
The council received information about the concept of Community Choice Energy, or CCE, and Monterey Bay Community Power on Monday.
During the meeting, officials said the program could save the residents upwards of $820,000 over a five-year period.
The cities of San Luis Obispo and Morro Bay already decided to join Monterey Bay Community Power’s Community Choice Energy Program in December of 2018.
The goal of the program is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, invest in renewable energy projects and programs, and lower electricity rates for customers.
Through the program, PG&E would still distribute power to cities that participate, however, that electricity would come from renewable sources, including wind, solar, and hydro-power.
The council is expected to bring the item back for discussion again in June.
