Bringing Energy Independence to Ohio

Paul Fenn, founder and CEO of Local Power, Inc., will talk about the emergence of green cities in California's Community Choice Aggregation (CCA) movement and the potential for Ohio communities to accelerate development of green power under its 1999 CCA law. Fenn will brief us on the San Francisco Bay Area's cluster of communities using CCA in conjunction with innovative financing mechanisms to develop and build solar, wind, efficiency, and other renewable technologies in local communities-and specifically why it is possible for these communities to achieve a 51% Renewable Portfolio Standard by 2017 without increasing electricity rates.Local Power Inc. is an Energy Service Bureau helping cities adopt, implement and manage Community Choice Aggregation (CCA) energy networks. CCA represents a revolution in the way power is generated and sold, allowing any community to build a new green energy infrastructure, diversify their electric power away from fossil fuels and nuclear power, and achieve energy independence and sustainability, all at the same prices that your utility now charges for conventional fossil and nuclear power. With Local Power, you need no longer choose between competitively priced power and green power.
