CCE - What is it?
Community Choice Energy (CCE, also known as Community Choice Aggregation) allows local governments to pool the electricity demands of their communities, purchase power with higher renewable content, lower greenhouse gas emissions and reinvest in local infrastructure.
How does it work?
If the County of Yolo moves forward with CCE, it will purchase electricity on your behalf – from sources that are cleaner, greener and more local. This will offer residents and business owners additional energy choices if living or operating businesses in the unincorporated area of Yolo County and the City of Davis. It won’t interrupt your electricity service in any way. PG&E will continue to deliver the electricity from the grid to your home or business, maintain the power lines, read your meter, and send you a single, consolidated bill. The only change is an opportunity to choose between different energy options – for the first time ever – at rates that are competitive and sometimes cheaper than what PG&E offers. If your home or business is in a CCE service area, you will be automatically enrolled in the program. You can choose to opt out and return to PG&E “bundled service” at any time.
What is happening now?
On October 25, 2016 Yolo County and the City of Davis formed a Community Choice Energy Program. The City and the County are now the first members of the Joint Powers authority (JPA), entitled Valley Clean Energy Alliance (‘VCEA’).
The Valley Clean Energy Alliance Board of Directors held its first official meeting on December 13th, 2016. To learn more about Yolo County’s involvement in VCEA and for additional up to date information please click here.
