CalCCA Launching New “Community Energy Innovation” Webinar Series
Monthly Webinars to begin April 24

The California Community Choice Association (CalCCA) is launching a new monthly webinar series on April 24 to facilitate the sharing of information and best practices within the CCA community and with the public at large.

As Community Choice Aggregators (CCAs) continue to grow and flourish in California, they are advancing innovative, industry-leading projects and programs. CalCCA’s Community Energy Innovation (CEI) webinar series provides a platform for CCAs and their partners to share experiences in a variety of focus areas, including energy resilience, customer programs, load management, and power procurement.

Calpine Energy Solutions is the webinar series sponsor. Calpine’s sponsorship funding will go directly to charities around the state that are providing relief to vulnerable communities impacted the most by the Coronavirus pandemic in California.
