September Meeting - Community Choice Aggregation
At our September meeting, on September 20, Melody Tovar, Regulatory Programs Division Manager in Sunnyvale's Environmental Services Department, will tell us about the City of Sunnyvale-led investigation into whether Sunnyvale, with perhaps other communities, should create a Community Choice Aggregation.
Community Choice energy programs enable cities and counties to procure electricity and reduce energy consumption for residents and local businesses. The most powerful aspect of Community Choice is that communities decide where their electricity will come from: is it fossil and nuclear, or solar and wind. Other decisions include whether to purchase electricity on the market, or more importantly, to develop local renewable energy resources in the community. Under a Community Choice energy program, the utility company continues to deliver and service the electricity. Sunnyvale is considering creating a CCA in part to be part of its program to reduce its greenhouse emissions.
