Monterey Bay Community Power Community Advisory Council Application
Monterey Bay Community Power (MBCP), soon to be Central Coast Community Energy (CCCE), seeks qualified, passionate and committed applicants for its volunteer Community Advisory Council (CAC). The CAC serves as an advisory body to the MBCP’s Policy and Operations Boards and CAC members serve as important connections to the diverse communities MBCP (soon to be CCCE) serves.
The key goals of MBCP, as outlined in the Joint Powers Agreement, are:
Maximize greenhouse gas reduction;
Stabilize and reduce customer rates and costs; and
Invest in local energy projects and programs.
The CAC has defined its scope and codified them in the CAC Bylaws. The scope of the CAC Bylaws has been approved by the Policy Board.
The CAC’s activities shall include:
Act as a liaison to the community by engaging in community outreach to assist and support MBCP (soon to be CCCE) while seeking the views of various groups of customers and potential customers of CCCE regarding CCCE proposals and policies;
Provide feedback and in-depth review of and oversight over MBCP (soon to be CCCE) Policy and Operations Boards (the “Boards”) and staff (“Staff”) on proposals and policy recommendations related to power supply mix, rate design, customer programs and community engagements; and
Assist with legislative advocacy in furtherance of MBCP’s (soon to be CCCE’s) key goals.
