City councils to hear plans for public power agency in Sonoma County

Sonoma County officials have announced a schedule of presentations to local city councils over the next two months on the county's plans for a public power agency.

The presentations are geared toward convincing cities to join the program in its initial rollout, set to begin in January.

The power proposal is aimed to provide electricity customers an alternative to Pacific Gas and Electric, the region's dominant utility. It proposes to offer a higher share of power from renewable sources, including wind, solar and geothermal, and allow profit from customer bills to be reinvested to build and finance local renewable energy projects.

The schedule of county presentations to cities is:

- Sebastopol, May 7

- Cloverdale, May 8

- Rohnert Park, May 14

- Windsor, May 15

- Petaluma, May 20

- Santa Rosa, May 21
