Making a rapid transition to renewable electricity is one of the most critical acts we can take to “decarbonize” our atmosphere. Community Choice Aggregation (CCA), approved for NY State in 2016 by the Public Service Commission, may be the way to make this happen quickly in an entire municipality, with people paying less than they are now for their default electricity supply.

When a local government agrees to join a CCA, by default all customers in the community will purchase their electricity through the CCA unless they opt out. Multiple governments join together in the CCA. The large volume of customers enables the CCA to obtain lower prices while promoting renewable energy. Together we are envisioning a Capital District CCA that would promote clean renewable energy, including locally generated energy and jobs, while still saving residents and businesses money. Learn about the power and potential of CCA for the Capital Region.
