LANCASTER – The City of Lancaster and the City of San Jacinto have joined forces to form the California Clean Energy Authority (CCEA), a statewide power authority created to provide clean energy solutions for municipalities throughout California. The agreement and resolution were approved during Tuesday’s (Aug. 14) Lancaster City Council meeting.
“With significant savings already realized in Lancaster, the CCEA offers a model to meet the needs of municipalities throughout the state,” said Lancaster Mayor R. Rex Parris. “Cities can now better leverage the power of the sun by harnessing the industry relationships, experience, and know-how of the CCEA.”
Through partnerships with leaders in solar power systems, as well as energy efficient design, financing, installation, monitoring and upkeep, the CCEA offers California cities, as well as their local public agencies the benefits of clean solar energy with no upfront costs and significant energy savings over traditional energy options.
“With more than 300 days of sunshine annually, now coupled with the experience, industry know-how, and proven partnerships of the California Clean Energy Authority, the City of San Jacinto is poised to make giant strides forward in meeting the energy demands of our community utilizing available renewable resources,” said San Jacinto’s Mayor Andrew Kotyuk. “This partnership will greatly assist our city in achieving compliance with California’s new renewable energy and recycling initiatives.”
San Jacinto’s initial public program, Solar San Jacinto, will use an approach similar to the Solar Lancaster program, which gained Lancaster the #1 ranking in California’s “Top 10” for solar installations.
