Alameda Green

Farewell, Alameda Green! Hello, clean energy for all!

Your commitment to renewable energy through your participation in Alameda Green has helped pave the way for clean energy for all Alameda customers and contributed to cleaner, greener communities in our region. As of January 1, 2020, Alameda Municipal Power reached its goal of providing 100% clean electricity to all customers. Thank you for your support in reaching this important milestone!

What does this mean for the Alameda Green program? The program will conclude at the end of May 2022. The transition will be seamless with no interruption to your electric service or billing. You will no longer be charged for Alameda Green and will no longer see the separate line item on your bill. The month in which this occurs, May or June, will depend on your billing cycle.
