Known as the “Capital of Silicon Valley,” the City of San José plays a vital economic and cultural role anchoring the world’s leading region of innovation. Encompassing 178 square miles at the southern tip of the San Francisco Bay, San José is Northern California’s largest city and the 10th largest city in the nation. With more than one million residents, San José is one of the most diverse large cities in the US.

Job Description

In 2017, the City established the Community Energy Department (CED) to administer San José Clean Energy (SJCE), San José’s Community Choice Energy provider. In February 2019, SJCE launched electricity generation service to residents and businesses. Today it serves more than 340,000 customers and has a peak load of almost 1 GW. SJCE is responsible for purchasing over 4,500 GWh of electricity annually and has an annual operating budget of over $250 million. SJCE is one of 8 Community Choice Aggregators (CCAs) in the Bay Area, and one of 23 in California. It is the largest single-jurisdiction CCA in the state. SJCE is driven to provide clean, renewable energy at affordable rates to help the city meet its Climate Smart San José goals and provide local benefits. In 2021, SJCE’s default energy service, GreenSource, is expected to have 55% renewable energy. Customers can also choose to upgrade to SJCE’s TotalGreen service to receive 100% renewable energy. More than 1,300 customers have chosen TotalGreen to date, including large corporate customers Samsung Semiconductor, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, Lumentum, and eBay. To meet customer demand for renewable energy, SJCE has invested in 497 MW of new solar, wind, and battery storage across four projects that will begin to generate power by the end of 2021.
