The Santa Barbara City Council voted on April 20, 2000, to contract with San Jose-based green power marketer (formerly Cleen ‘n Green) to meet up to 90% of the city’s total municipal electricity demand with renewable energy. The purchase, which is valued at $1.6 to $1.8 million, places Santa Barbara among the largest direct purchasers of green power.
