Local Power Inc. - Experience.

Many new firms have been formed in recent years in response to new demand for energy independence and greener power, but few have the depth of experience in the energy business that is needed to ensure success. Local Power Inc. is a nationally recognized leader in preparing communities to implement local government renewable energy programs, providing municipal and county design and implementation services with cross-sectoral sophistication navigating government, legal, logistical and financial challenges.

We bring not only experience, but leadership in the many layers of knowledge that define energy. Over the past fifteen years, Local Power wrote America's first renewable energy financing authority (San Francisco's Solar Bond Authority, 2001) and created the original California's Community Choice Aggregation laws such as California's (AB117, 2002) and similar laws in other U.S. states. Over the past decade, Local Power has drafted government policy documents, implementation plans and solicitation documents for major and minor municipal and regional governments to green and localize their energy supplies including major accomplishments in green power, energy independence and climate protection.
