Energy Reliability

The City is working alongside the utilities to increase energy reliability in the face of climate change threats, public safety power shutoffs (PSPS), and other natural disasters. This includes looking at microgrids, siting renewable energy, and pursuing energy efficiency opportunities.
The City is also working on energy assurance policies and procedures to maintain critical municipal facilities and services during the disruption of electricity and natural gas supplies.
Reliable energy is a community-wide effort, which means you are part of the solution!
