Alameda Green

About Alameda Green

Now that Alameda Municipal Power has reached its goal to provide 100 percent clean electricity to all customers starting in January 2020, we’re expanding the focus of the Alameda Green program.

Instead of simply greening up your personal electricity usage, your participation in Alameda Green offers you the opportunity to support renewable energy beyond Alameda’s borders. By avoiding greenhouse gas emissions, this renewable energy contributes to cleaner, greener communities in our region.

Your continued voluntary participation in Alameda Green will help ensure a healthy planet for future generations.

Renewable Energy Certificates 

The Alameda Green program purchases renewable energy certificates (RECs), which state that renewable energy was generated at a regional power source and added to the electric grid on your behalf.

Monthly Cost 

The additional monthly cost to participate is only $6.62 for the average Alameda household and as little as $20 per month for businesses.
