Community Choice Aggregation gives local energy a chance
Come June, the public will be let in on a secret. It's the secret to buying and selling renewable energy at a competitive price.
Community Choice Aggregation (CCA) is a local government-run electricity program that operates as a nonprofit entity, according to the Santa Cruz County Commission on the Environment. CCA agencies can aggregate local, renewable resources generated in a consortium of counties and cities and sell it back to these districts, which form a joint powers authority.
