Due to its location at the end of the distribution lines for PG&E and SCE, Santa Barbara County has experienced grid reliability and resiliency challenges. To bolster the dependability of the local electrical grid and meet local clean energy and economic development goals, the County of Santa Barbara and the Cities of Carpinteria and Goleta are working together to develop a regional strategic energy plan. The City of Santa Barbara is creating a similar strategic energy plan. Collectively, we're working to address our region's energy needs. 

This page provides more information about the region's and each local government's strategic energy plan. We invite you to learn more and share your feedback below.
