Community Choice Energy 101
What’s a “CCE”? Great question. Community Choice Energy (CCE) programs enable local government control over energy procurement—to purchase power, set competitive rates, and collect revenue. With this approach, the local utility providers still maintain the electricity grid, deliver energy, and handle billing. CCEs offer automatic enrollment to both businesses and residents in their jurisdiction, with the ability for customers to opt out at any time. From time to time, you’ll also hear CCEs referred to as “CCAs,” which just means Community Choice Aggregation; the two terms are interchangeable. If you have any questions, we’re here to answer them.
