Clean Energy Alliance Town Halls– On April 1, the City flipped the switch, officially joining the Clean Energy Alliance (CEA). CEA is Vista’s partner in meeting its Climate Action Plan goals as the new default energy provider for purchasing power. CEA offers increased local control and renewable energy options at competitive rates. On April 1, all Vista customers were enrolled at the Clean Impact Plus level, receiving 50% renewable and 75% carbon-free energy.

If you have questions about switching to CEA, including rates, you can attend two upcoming town halls.
