Community Choice Aggregation (CCA)

The City of Berkeley is working with the East Bay Municipal Utility District (EBMUD) to conduct a pre-feasibility analysis of an EBMUD Community Choice Aggregation (CCA) to potentially serve Berkeley and other East Bay communities. CCA allows public agencies, such as EBMUD, to procure electric power on behalf of electric power customers. Under a CCA, PG&E would continue to provide delivery of the power and customer billing. Customers would have a choice to continue to purchase power directly from PG&E by opting out of the CCA. One of the key objectives of the EBMUD analysis would be to determine whether CCA can help the City achieve its Climate Action goals.

In 2010, the City of Berkeley completed a CCA business plan with Oakland and Emeryville but choose not to pursue CCA at that time.
