Bulb Community Choice Energy in HB

In 2002, Assembly Bill 117 opened the door for Community Choice Energy (CCE) programs, which allow local governments to purchase energy on behalf of their communities while still receiving transmission and distribution service from their existing utility provider.  For decades, Southern California Edison has been the sole utility provider for most of Southern California.  But now Huntington Beach will join the County's first CCE, the Orange County Power Authority, to become an alternate purchaser of power for its residents and businesses.  This will not only introduce a new level of competition into the local energy market, but also provide customer choice.  Click here for more info

ReFuel Your Fun & Save

In North America, 40 million disposable one-pound propane cylinders are used and tossed out each year. Empty cylinders are often disposed of improperly in landfills, dumpsters, household trash, campsites, on the roadside or in recycling containers.  The solution?  Refillable one-pound propane cylinders.  Refillables save money and hassle, last up to 12 years, and can reduce the impact on landfills and the environment.  For more information visit
