Citizen Committee Evaluates Community Choice Aggregation Options for Oakley


Community Choice Aggregation (CCA) is a program that enables local governments to
aggregate electricity demand within their jurisdictions in order to procure electricity for its
customers while maintaining the existing electricity provider, Pacific Gas & Electric
Company, for customer billing, transmission and distribution services. The State of
California passed legislation in 2002 (Assembly Bill 117) that permits local agencies to form CCA programs for their communities.

The City of Oakley City Council is currently exploring three options: 1) join an existing
neighboring program such as MCE Clean Energy, 2) explore the possibility of joining East
Bay Community Energy (not established but forming in Alameda County), or 3) remain
with PG&E. The City Council has appointed a six member Community Choice Energy Ad-
Hoc Advisory Committee to analyze the three options and provide a formal
recommendation at a March 14, 2017 City Council Work Session.

The Committee met on February 15, 2017 and will hold a second public meeting on March
9, 2017. The City has prepared a Community Choice Aggregation
website accessed through this link:

This webpage has several resources including a Frequently Asked Questions
area, links to MCE Clean Energy and East Bay Community Energy as well as past Staff
Reports presented to the City Council.
