The Marin Energy Authority (MEA) is the not-for-profit public agency formed by the County of Marin and all of Marin's cities and towns. MEA administers California's first Community Choice Aggregation program, MCE.
MEA was created in December 2008 following six years of careful study and review in more than 200 public meetings and hearings.
MEA is governed by a thirteen-member Board of Directors representing each of the participating jurisdictions which include the City of Belvedere, Town of Corte Madera, Town of Fairfax, City of Larkspur, City of Mill Valley, City of Novato, City of Richmond, Town of Ross, Town of San Anselmo, City of San Rafael, City of Sausalito, Town of Tiburon, and the County of Marin.
The purpose of the Marin Energy Authority is to address climate change by reducing energy related greenhouse gas emissions and securing energy supply, price stability, energy efficiencies and local economic and workforce benefits. It is the intent of MEA to promote the development and use of a wide range of renewable energy sources and energy efficiency programs, including but not limited to solar and wind energy production at competitive rates for customers.
