Community Outreach

Part of MBCP’s success is tied to engaging, educating, and learning from our community. As a public, not-for-profit entity we are in a unique position to support the needs of our residents and businesses. An important part to achieving all of this is having a regular presence at popular community events, annual gatherings, special events and more. All of us at MBCP are excited to become familiar faces in the crowd and we look forward to seeing you around town!


Events that the MBCP Outreach Team will be available:

As a Community Choice Energy agency, Monterey Bay Community Power is proud to be supporting our Tri-County community in many ways. Many Tri-County residents, business leaders, activists and community leaders were instrumental in helping MBCP get started. We look forward to returning your support by achieving our agency goals – reducing greenhouse gas emissions, controlling costs, supporting economic vitality – and by becoming a valued resource for our community.
