Overview

Community Choice Energy (CCE) programs are local, not-for-profit governmental programs that purchase electrical power on behalf of its residents, businesses, and governmental entities. The primary objective of a CCE is to give communities a choice in energy providers.  CCEs also provide a way for local governments to offer a greater proportion of renewable energy, thereby reducing greenhouse gas emissions.  Currently there are eight operational CCE agencies in California and eight additional agencies that will soon go online.
