SF Community Power pilots innovative programs that improve our neighborhoods' environmental and economic conditions. We help small businesses and low-income families lower their expenses and reduce their ecological footprint. Our work provides policy makers with demonstrative ways to solve complex resource allocation issues.
Our Demand Response Energy Alert program pays small- and medium-sized Bay Area businesses to reduce their electricity use during peak periods, when demand is especially high. The program helps the state avoid blackouts and reduces reliance on the most polluting power plants. This FREE program provides a sustainable way to manage your energy use at a time of rising energy costs.
Our climate change initiative helps small businesses and low-income families reduce their carbon footprint. Participants in this pilot program save money, reduce their greenhouse gas emissions and transition to using more sustainable products. The program also provides policymakers with a demonstration program that could point to cost-effective ways of addressing the equity issues associated with global climate change.
