Community Choice Aggregation (CCA)

In 2014, the City joined MCE Clean Energy, a local government Joint Powers Authority (JPA) that provides low-carbon electricity at competitive rates for residents and businesses in member cities. This arrangement is known as Community Choice Aggregation (CCA). Currently, MCE provides electricity and related solar and efficiency programs in Marin County, Napa County, Contra Costa County, and Benicia. For more information on CCA...
