MCE Community Leader Advisory Groups


We need YOU to help put Community first. This summer, Concord, Danville, Martinez, Moraga, Oakley, Pinole, Pittsburg, San Ramon, and unincorporated Contra Costa County all voted to join MCE, Californiaʹs first Community Choice Energy program. Starting in Spring 2018, residents and businesses in these communities will be able to choose to have 50‐100% renewable energy generated for their electricity needs. Additionally, new incentives to catalyze local sustainable development (e.g., decentralized renewable energy projects) will be available. To help MCE inform the public about these new options and opportunities, and to provide feedback on outreach strategies, you are invited to join one or all three MCEʹs Community Leader Advisory Groups (CLAGs).

Empowering community stakeholders is central to MCE’s engagement. During enrollment periods, MCE convenes CLAGs, typically consisting of 10‐20 participants, to guide local outreach efforts. CLAGs are intended to facilitate feedback from a diverse cross‐section of community representatives. They are informal and participants are not expected to have a background in energy policy. During previous MCE enrollments, CLAGs have included representatives from environmental organizations, industry and business associations, senior communities, and those who speak English as a second language.

The CLAGs help MCE:

  • identify outreach strategies and venues,
  • help distribute information, and
  • promote presentations and events.

If interested in participating, please fill out the online form and MCE staff will contact you: https://www.mcecleanenergy.org/clag/
