On April 10 the Sonoma County Water Agency voted unanimously to take the next steps toward Sonoma Clean Power, a local program that buys and generates electricity for business and residents. The Board voted to pursue the creation of a Joint Powers Authority that would govern the program, and to produce the program’s Implementation Plan laying out the details of how Sonoma Clean Power will work. Once complete, the Implementation Plan will be submitted to the California Public Utilities Commission to establish Sonoma Clean Power as a local electricity provider.
