Only registered attendees will be granted access to this meeting

 

Community Choice Aggregators (CCAs) can often be a viable alternative to Investor-Owned Utilities (IOUs), buying clean power in bulk on behalf of a group of electricity consumers. The IOU typically still owns and manages the distribution grid, and so to the extent the CCA buys power from the IOU, CCA customers can only know they are getting (on average) the same percentage of clean electricity electrons as does the IOU’s grid. Furthermore, currently only California and a few other states (e.g. Massachusetts, Illinois, and Ohio) have laws allowing CCAs. We’ll review the challenges encountered by CCAs in offering reliable clean energy, and what the IOUs are doing in response to this competition.

 

To view an insightful white paper by Laura Erickson and Judy Prejean on local renewable energy production via Community Choice Aggregation, please see their "San Rafael Airport Case Study" Here.
