Who We Are

The mission of the California Alliance for Community Energy is to support and defend Community Choice and other energy programs in California that advance local clean energy for the environmental justice, economic justice, and social justice benefit of our communities.

  • The Community in Community Choice

    Grounded in the advocate community, the Alliance has no financial interests in Community Choice programs. We advocate for community-minded Values and Principles.

  • The Alliance's Organization

    The Alliance consists of advocates and supporters committed to developing local renewable energy resources and clean energy jobs through Community Choice energy programs. The Alliance provides a forum for discourse among a diverse group of stakeholders to: build relationships, share resources, educate each other, and organize.

  • What We Do

    The Alliance hosts monthly Statewide conference calls, organizes campaigns, publishes position papers on legislative and regulatory topics, and produces literature on best practices in community choice energy. In 2023, we have published this brochure on our values, principles and priorities.

Alliance Leadership

These Steering Committee members meet bimonthly to lead the organization.
Al Weinrub was a justice warrior for over 50 years, prior to his untimely death August 30, 2023. He championed energy justice and energy democracy for all, founding the CA Alliance for Community Energy in 2015. We join our sister organizations, to which Al was also instrumental, (LCEA, ROP, and EDP) in pledging to keep Al’s flame alive in the work we continue to do.
