Napa welcomes Marin Clean Energy into city’s power market

By Howard Yune, Napa Valley Register.

The company that supplies electricity from renewable sources to Napa County customers will take its program into the city of Napa as well.

Marin Clean Energy is set to become Napa’s default power provider for local homes and businesses, after the City Council on Tuesday approved the first reading of an ordinance to partner with the San Rafael-based firm.

The city joins the unincorporated county in offering electricity based on solar, wind, hydroelectric, biogas and other sustainable sources, which the company is rolling out across the Bay Area.
