Eureka, CA: August 9, 2019 The Redwood Coast Energy Authority (RCEA) is updating its guiding strategic document and is seeking public input and support in the process. Workshops will take place over the coming months and the community is also encouraged to submit written comments.
RCEA’s Comprehensive Action Plan for Energy (“CAPE”) details strategies that specifically address regional energy planning and coordination, programs for energy customers, low-carbon transportation, and energy generation and utility services.
The energy landscape in Humboldt County has changed over the past seven years, and strategies within RCEA’s original 2012 Comprehensive Action Plan for Energy need to be updated to align with this new landscape. The updated plan, which will include RCEA’s goal of 100% clean and renewable electricity by 2025, will include input from the county’s Climate Action Plan development and community outreach.
RCEA is updating high-level CAPE strategies, consolidating and incorporating several of its other strategic planning documents into the CAPE, and developing quantitative targets including RCEA’s power mix make-up for the next ten years.
Comments on the CAPE are encouraged during the draft development and comment period schedule below. For more information on the calendar and workshops, please contact the Redwood Coast Energy Authority at (707) 269-1700 or EnergyPlan2019@redwoodenergy.org, or by visiting https://redwoodenergy.org/services/planning/. Meeting agendas, schedule updates, and additional meeting details will be posted on RCEA’s website.
All Board of Director meetings are held at the Humboldt Bay Municipal Water District Office, 828 7th St., Eureka. The Community Advisory Committee meeting is at RCEA’s office, 633 3rd St. Eureka.
