We provide clean electricity across Los Angeles and Ventura counties at competitive rates.

We give communities access to the power of choice, as well as green energy at competitive prices. Our local-first approach benefits communities on the ground-level: environmentally and economically. And because we are not-for-profit, our revenues are reinvested back into the communities we serve through programs and scholarships that benefit the people who need it most.
