The City of Cerritos became a member of SCPPA in 2003. Since 2005, the City of Cerritos has been serving the electrical demands of the City's business community. Over the years, the City's customer base has steadily increased and the utility currently serves 318 accounts. The utility serves educational institutions and major retail businesses in the City with the primary goal of providing an economical and reliable supply of electricity. Cerritos continues to receive power primarily from the Magnolia Power Plant. However, with increasing customer load and demand, the City has applied for and received a small allocation of hydroelectric power from the Western Area Power Administration. This hydroelectric power generated by the Boulder Canyon Power project will become available to Cerritos starting in the summer of 2017.
