Community Environmental Council

For nearly 50 years, CEC has incubated and innovated real life solutions that directly impact climate change. Our programs lead to clean vehicles, solar energy, resilient food systems and reduction of single-use plastic. We educate and activate the community by producing events like the annual Santa Barbara Earth Day Festival.

Our Partnership

Greenpower supports the Community Environmental Council in its mission to fight the global climate crisis through effective local action. The Council is a vital partner in our effort to create a carbon-free Central Coast.
