Anyone here being transitioned to the Clean Power Alliance for energy source? Thoughts? Generally seems like not much difference, however the rub with me is that they reset the NEM period for solar customers and because I usually rack up additional credits during Spring for the end of my true-up in May that erase my charges I'd have to pay SCE a couple hundred based on the early Feb 1 transition rate. Not cool. I think I'm opting out.

Not familiar. Do you have any sources of information? Is this something that's being forced on us unless we opt out?

Good luck with that. I plan to stay away from this as long as possible.

Service in our city is set to auto-enroll. Upside is there are 3 pricing options, with a "Green Power" option that buys 100% renewable. Attractive to me as Solar is prohibitively expensive, with structural and shading issues on our house.

This may be depending on where you are. Clean Power Alliance is one of the "Community Choice Aggregators" it seems. Yes, it is being forced on unless opt out and I just got the first notification letter only 3 days before they switched me!

I'm close to you on the South side of the hills and same applies here... If we didn't have solar or the true up date change wouldn't end up costing me I'd probably went with it. Solar works pretty well for us with SCE however, no real reason for the switch-over and it can be done later too. I called this morning and opted out, they said the true-up date shouldn't change, we'll see.

I'm super mad as despite me opting out of this stupid program my NEM period has been reset and I now owe money to SCE. Hopefully someone will class-action their asses for this.
