City of San Jose, CA
Deputy Director of Power Resources
In May 2017, the San José City Council voted unanimously to establish San José Clean Energy (SJCE), the City of San José's Community Choice Energy (CCE) program. CCEs allow governments to buy or generate renewable sources of electricity for their businesses and residents, offering the same power service with more choice and competitive rates. With SJCE, San José is now the largest single jurisdiction in California to operate a CCE. SJCE is expected to launch in April 2018. SJCE will be a partnership with Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E). SJCE will purchase cleaner power, set rates, and retain revenue. PG&E will maintain the grid, deliver the energy, and send customers a bill, same as always. Customers will be helping to lower greenhouse gas emissions, while still enjoying the same electricity service. Enrollment will be automatic, with a choice for opting out.
The Deputy Director of Power Resources is a newly created position and will be a key member of the Community Energy team. Reporting directly to the Director of Community Energy, the main area of responsibilities is overseeing and administering the power procurement process, resource planning, contract management and compliance programs, and strategic studies. Other responsibilities include researching and ensuring due diligence with respect to potential power supply opportunities, assisting with negotiating and administrating power purchase agreements, monitoring contractor performance and resolving disputes, validating invoices, identifying issues, and monitoring compliance.
Requires education and experience equivalent to a bachelor's degree (master’s degree desired), and a minimum of six years of experience directly related to the duties and responsibilities described. Experience working in energy trading, the utility industry, and/or with a Community Choice Aggregation program is desirable. Nationwide candidates from the public and private sector are encouraged to apply.
Salary range $116,893 to $182,084 DOQ.
