All Paramount electricity customers will be enrolled automatically with CPA through Southern California Edison (SCE) in early 2019. Watch your mail starting December 1 for information coming directly from CPA further explaining the program.
In a nutshell, CPA buys the cleaner electricity and delivery is still made over Edison’s existing utility lines. Nothing else changes. You will still get a bill from SCE and deal with the utility on any service issues.
The only difference is that a percentage of the power will come from renewable sources and there may be a subsequent savings on your monthly bill. This is just one more way that the City is doing its part to make Paramount as environmentally friendly as possible.
CPA was established in 2017 to provide cost competitive electric services, reduce electric sector greenhouse gas emissions, stimulate renewable energy development, implement distributed energy resources, promote energy efficiency and demand reduction programs, and sustain long-term rate stability for residents and businesses through local control. Originally established as a joint powers authority with unincorporated Los Angeles County, Rolling Hills Estates, and South Pasadena as founding members, we quickly grew to a coalition of 31 agencies across Los Angeles and Ventura Counties.
