Amid the unforgiving heatwaves and hurricanes devastating the U.S., grid outages have become the new normal, setting a higher standard for clean, reliable and affordable power. By building one of California’s most progressive local power providers, Nick Chaset, the CEO of East Bay Community Energy (EBCE), can share how a proactive approach–one that gives customers renewable energy at competitive rates and reinvests into the community to create local green jobs, beneficial programs and clean power projects–is disrupting the energy industry.

Through programs with Resilient Home, Sunrun and others, as well as demand response provider OhmConnect, Nick can demonstrate how to ensure residents can keep the lights on in the face of surging climate change-induced crises. Moreover, Nick’s vision for EBCE serves as a blueprint for cities nationwide, especially those more vulnerable to extreme weather that need new technologies to remain resilient.
