Local Development Business Plan

Pergola on Lake Merritt

The Local Development Business Plan (LDBP) is intended to develop a comprehensive framework for accelerating the development of clean energy assets within Alameda County. The Local Development Business Plan includes a description of how Ava can contribute to fostering local economic benefits, such as job creation and community energy programs.

The LDBP identifies opportunities for local power development, explains how to achieve Ava’s community benefits goals, and provides employment and labor standards for adoption by the Ava Board of Directors. Ava staff and the Local Development Business Plan consultant team made sure that the Alameda County community had every opportunity to weigh in during the process. The plan was approved by the Ava Community Energy Board of Directors on July 18, 2018.
