Sonoma Clean Power Job Opportunity: Legislative Policy & Community Engagement ManagerSonoma Clena Power

Posted October 18, 2023

About Sonoma Clean Power (SCP)
As California’s second community choice aggregator or “CCA,” SCP is a community-owned electricity provider for Sonoma and Mendocino counties. We source electric energy primarily from geothermal, hydropower, wind, solar, and biomass—and use PG&E to deliver our power to 230,000 residents and businesses. We also are a leader in California’s clean power transition, having provided an optional 100% local renewable source since 2014 that has no dependency on natural gas power plants year-round. We operate the nation’s first Energy Center dedicated to helping renters and homeowners upgrade their homes without any reliance on fossil energy, and we constantly invent new customer incentives and resources to help improve grid reliability and lower energy costs.

Summary Description
The Legislative Policy Manager works closely with Sonoma Clean Power’s CEO to educate and advocate for clean power, energy affordability, grid reliability, and to protect the rights of community-owned power providers to operate. This role has two key functions: policy advocacy in Sacramento, and public engagement for SCP’s special clean power initiatives, like building 600 MW of new local geothermal power.

The policy advocacy role involves participation in the statewide California Community Choice Association (CalCCA) meetings and events, analysis of proposed legislation, briefing the CEO and staff, drafting reports, meetings with lawmakers and their staff and managing SCP’s lobbyist.

The special initiatives role involves educating our local community on SCP’s GeoZone projects, supporting public outreach and events, attending and representing SCP at industry conferences, developing relationships with federal agency staff and lawmakers as appropriate, supporting SCP’s private partners (e.g., with content for grant applications), and more.
