This Working Group advocates for the establishment of a Community Choice Aggregation (CCA) program in the City of Berkeley. Community choice aggregation (CCA) allows local governments to pool, or aggregate, the electric load of their residents, businesses and institutions in order to purchase electricity on their behalf. The Working Group is developing educational materials detailing existing and developing California CCA programs and identifying the benefits – environmental, economic, and social – of establishing a CCA program. Resources are available from Marin County’s CCA program: overview of their program, and common critiques of this type of program and responses. Through an outreach and education campaign targeting the Berkeley public and the Berkeley City Council, and including meetings with stakeholders and public forums, the CCE Working Group is working toward the adoption and implementation of a Berkeley CCA program.
