Community Advisory Committee

The Redwood Coast Energy Authority Board of Directors established a Community Advisory Committee (CAC) to support RCEA public engagement efforts and to provide decision-making support and input to the RCEA Board.

The CAC can have up to 15 members. Eleven are appointed by the RCEA Board, and four additional members were added through an open application process that was voted on by the full RCEA Board. CAC members serve 2-year terms, and all CAC members live in Humboldt County.

CAC meetings are held quarterly. Additional CAC meetings are held to address specific topics or situations as needed.

CAC meetings are open to the public and are held at 6 p.m. on the second Tuesday of the first month of each quarter at RCEA’s office, 633 Third Street in Old Town Eureka. (Exceptions are being made during the COVID-19 Shelter-in-Place order and are being held on zoom)
