Clean Power Alliance

January 24, 2019 

In December 2017, the City of Redondo Beach joined a Community Choice Aggregation program called the Clean Power Alliance. Through Community Choice Aggregation, government agencies join together to purchase or generate cleaner electricity for residents and businesses.

In October 2018, the Redondo Beach City Council selected 50% renewables as the default rate for all energy customers in the City. The 50% renewable "Clean Power" tier will be the same cost as Southern California Edison's current base rate, which contains only 34% renewables.

Through the City’s membership in the Clean Power Alliance, Redondo Beach residents and businesses are automatically being enrolled in the program. Beginning in February 2019, all residential energy customers in Redondo Beach will receive 50% of their energy from clean, renewable sources. Non-residential customers will begin service in May 2019.

Energy users will also have the choice of switching to either 36% or 100% renewable energy, or opting out of the program and returning to receiving power exclusively generated by Southern California Edison. Regardless of the option selected, Southern California Edison will continue to deliver power to homes and businesses, send one bill, and be responsible for resolving any issues with electricity service.

Redondo Beach - Beach Renourishment Project

August 9, 2012 

For the week of 10/8/2012

The replenishment operation made up some time and the onshore replenishment is complete. The barge (Paul Lee) has left Redondo Beach and the contractor will be moving equipment off of the beach today and tomorrow. Per last week’s meeting, the project is expected to be completed on October 15 and completely demobilized on October 22.

As part of U.S. Army Corps of Engineer's Marina Del Rey Maintenance Dredging Project, the beach area between the Topaz and Ruby street intersections will be nourished with 75,000 cubic yards of clean sand. An additional 85,000 cubic yards of clean sand from Marina Del Rey's north entrance will also be deposited in an offshore storage site (approximately 500 yards offshore/southwest of the Topaz Street lifeguard tower) for future renourishing efforts.

The nourishment operation will include the pumping of clean sand from a barge stationed in the ocean waters through a pipe to the beach. A spreader (i.e., bull-dozer) will distribute the pumped sand along the beach within the project limits. The nourishment will occur continuously in a 24 hour period for approximately 45 days.
