Caltrain will be powered entirely by renewable energy sources by 2019 for a 4.8 percent cost increase — or an additional $64,314 a year — if the transit agency partners with a new community choice energy program.

That program is called San Jose Clean Energy and the Caltrain board will likely make the partnership official at a Thursday, Nov. 1, meeting.
