White Paper on Community Choice Aggregation The Opportunity and its Status Nationally
By Ellen Lee, EcoMotion 2017 Summer Intern
The growth of the renewable energy market has sparked an evolution in electricity procurement and begun to shift towards a local and community-based model. The new concept in the sustainable grid and utility world is Community Choice Aggregation. In order to answer the demand for renewables and further push clean energy into the grid, many cities and counties have been partnering or “aggregating” their electrical demand, such that the CCA can procure and supply electricity to its conglomerate residents, businesses, and municipalities. Serving as a localized energy provider, CCAs, along with its communities, will allow for more control over the procurement and sources of electricity to accelerate the green power movement while saving consumers money.
