Sonoma County will be presenting its plan for a countywide public power agency on Tuesday to the Sebastopol City Council.
Called Community Choice Aggregation, the county is proposing a joint-powers agency between the county and cities that would buy energy on the wholesale market.
It would be an alternative to purchasing power from PG&E, although PG&E would still maintain the infrastructure.
The program is also seen as a way to boost investment in clean and renewable energy sources, create jobs and reduce greenhouse emissions.
The Sonoma County Water Agency has been giving the hour-long presentations to each of the cities.
The Sebastopol City Council is meeting at 6 p.m. Tuesday in the Youth Annex.
