Better for the Planet

With bulk purchasing, we can obtain 5 - 10% more renewable energy without significantly increasing energy costs. This will save tonnes of CO2 each year, protecting the environment and helping us reach our climate targets.

Money Smart

The new Community Choice Electricity purchasing plan will add little or no costs to residents or businesses. The new shared plan will also protect us from price spikes caused by the changing cost of fossil fuels.

Protects Residents

Have people been calling you or knocking on your door and offering you a new electricity plan? Many of these plans do not deliver on their promises. Our Community Choice Electricity plan protects residents against energy scams by implementing a new citywide clean energy electricity plan for all of us.

Thank You

To all the organizations, activist groups, officials, and businesses who helped make this happen, not all of whom are listed here.
