What is CalCCA?
The California Community Choice Association (CalCCA) represents the interests of California’s community choice electricity providers in the legislature and at state regulatory agencies, including the California Public Utilities Commission, California Energy Commission and California Air Resources Board. CalCCA’s voting membership is comprised of operating CCA programs in California that are serving load or about to launch (implementation plan has been submitted and CEO appointed). Local governments interested in community choice may join as affiliate members.
Our mission is to create a legislative and regulatory environment that supports the development and long-term sustainability of locally run Community Choice Aggregators (CCAs) in California. We serve our members and strengthen our collective voice through education, technical guidance, and regulatory and legislative advocacy.
CalCCA was formed in 2016 by six Community Choice Aggregators (CCAs) in California: CleanPowerSF, Lancaster Choice Energy, MCE, Peninsula Clean Energy, Silicon Valley Clean Energy, and Sonoma Clean Power. Today, our membership includes 23 of the 24 CCAs operating in California as well as several emerging CCA communities. Our members are successfully and reliably serving upwards of 11 million customers in more than 200 cities and counties in California – and those numbers are set to grow as more communities move ahead with CCA.
