What people are saying

Throughout the non-profit sector, Aera Energy is a highly respected and valued corporate partner. I can attest to their level of commitment to our community. Long before they embarked on this redevelopment project, Aera Energy officials had already demonstrated their interest in the health and well-being of the children we serve at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Santa Maria Valley.

Jeremy Deming
Boys & Girls Club of Santa Maria Valley

“Aera’s significant support of United Way’s literacy programs and the Workforce And Literacy Initiative (WALI) are not only important to the broader community. It represents a significant component of future workforce preparation, not to mention the creation of hundreds of good jobs.”

Eddie Taylor
Executive Director, Northern Santa Barbara County United Way

“I am a Santa Barbara vineyard owner and extra virgin oil producer. I also support responsible and reasonable economic growth in our county. Aera Energy has approached this project and our community in exactly the right way. They have demonstrated that they are a company that is open and transparent about their plans, and want to become a good neighbor in Santa Barbara.”
