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 bimonthly. 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 every other month at the Jefferson Community Center Auditorium, 1000 B Street in Eureka. See MAP for ADA accessibility.  Zoom online and phone meeting participation is available for these meetings. From March 2023, meeting recordings will be aired on Access Humboldt and archived for on-demand viewing.
