THE ECONEWS REPORT: How will Humboldt Reach 100% Clean, Renewable Energy? – Lost Coast Outpost

###

In 2019, the Redwood Coast Energy Authority adopted a goal to
deliver 100% clean, renewable electricity to all customers by 2025
and for 100% of that power be generated within Humboldt County by
2030. Richard Engel, Director of Power Resources at RCEA, joins Gang
Green to talk about their plans to rapidly increase renewables in
our power portfolio. RCEA recently contracted with a new solar farm
in Kern County to deliver 100MW of power by 2022 and is working on a
residential battery storage program through Swell Energy for local
customers to provide consistent, dispatchable power to the grid. RCEA
is also joining with other community choice energy aggregators in a
new organization, California Community Choice Association, to
leverage their combined purchasing and lobbying ability to more
rapidly more the entire state towards a renewable energy future.

If you want to
get to 100% renewable energy even sooner, sign
