Citizen Sourcing

The Redwood Coast Energy Authority implements a variety of energy-related programs and projects of behalf of Humboldt County ratepayers. In May of 2017 we launched Community Choice Energy (CCE). CCE prioritizes the use of local renewable energy, economic development, energy independence, customer rate-savings, choice and community programs.

RCEA is now inviting the community to join us in identifying new and/or expanded programs or projects. Anyone with a compatible idea or vision is welcome to respond, prior experience with energy planning is not required. Ideas will be accepted on an ongoing basis.

RCEA hopes to see a wide range of concepts, from neighborhood innovations to county-wide solutions. Programs or projects must provide a direct benefit to Humboldt County Community Choice Energy ratepayers and align with RCEA’s program development priorities:


  • Energy Efficiency, Electrification and Conservation

  • Electric Vehicles and Charging Infrastructure

  • Distributed Solar and Energy Storage Systems
