Talk Humboldt: RCEA's Matthew Marshall
Offshore wind represents "a big opportunity for clean energy and climate action, but also for economic development" for Humboldt County, says Matthew Marshall of the Redwood Coast Energy Authority (RCEA).
RCEA's mission is to develop and implement sustainable energy initiatives that reduce energy demand, increase energy efficiency, and advance the use of clean, efficient, and renewable resources available in the region.
This takes the shape of numerous initiatives, like helping residents make their homes more efficient, working on local microgrid projects, a Community Choice Energy program, helping local businesses streamline their electric usage, and exploring offshore wind.
In this episode of Talk Humboldt, Marshall offers hosts Keith Flamer and Tom Jackson a thumbnail sketch of what RCEA is and how it works to reduce electric usage in Humboldt County.
