Thank you to each and every member that took the time to support our Central Valley economy and show Sacramento that Business Makes Central Valley Work! 

We believe being a world leader in reducing greenhouse gas emissions does not have to come at the cost of small businesses, low-income residents and good-paying jobs.

Innovation and choice (be it clean natural gas, electricity, wind, solar, etc) is the only way to address climate change while maintaining California’s global economic status, ensuring energy reliability, addressing our current homelessness and housing affordability crisis, and keeping costs low.
