Island’s Power Company Among the Greenest in Nation

Alameda Municipal Power (AMP) was recently recognized as a national industry leader for its “smart energy” programs focused on energy efficiency, sustainability and the customer experience. AMP was one of 27 community-owned utilities in the nation to earn the designation of “Smart Energy Provider” from the American Public Power Association (APPA) in 2020.

The Smart Energy Provider designation, recognizes public power utilities for leadership in four key areas: smart energy program structure; energy efficiency and distributed energy programs; environmental and sustainability initiatives; and the customer experience. This is the second year APPA has offered the designation. In total, 94 public power utilities in the U.S. hold the designation.

In January 2020, AMP began providing 100% clean energy from wind, hydro, geothermal and landfill sources to all customers, placing Alameda in a select group of cities leading the nation in the transition to green power.

In addition, for the fifth consecutive year, AMP has been recognized as a national industry leader for its Alameda Green program. AMP recently earned two separate top 10 rankings from the U.S. Department of Energy’s primary national laboratory for renewable energy and energy efficiency research. Alameda Green was ranked third on the customer participation rate list and sixth on the rate of green power sales in 2019.

Alameda Green gives residents and businesses the option to support renewable energy projects beyond Alameda’s borders. To date, the program includes more than 3,400 residents and 60 businesses.

The first ranking highlights the high number of AMP customers participating in Alameda Green. The second ranking showcases AMP’s megawatt-hour sales from Alameda Green in comparison with total utility megawatt-hour sales. View the rankings at
