Community Choice Aggregation
With funding from the California Energy Commission's Public Interest Energy Research program, the Local Government
Commission has worked with Navigant Consulting, Inc. to assist twelve California communities in their investigation of
Community Choice Aggregation (CCA) feasibility. They are:
- Beverly Hills
- Los Angeles County
- Marin County
- San Diego County
- San Marcos
- West Hollywood
Each community has been provided preliminary feasibility studies, and some are continuing on to more detailed studies.
The project has produced a fact sheet and
two workshops. Three more workshops and a guidebook are in the works for 2007.

CCA Pilot Program
Overall Goal of the Proposed Project:
To assist local governments to assess ways of implementing CCA
in a way to significantly exceed the State's Renewable
Portfolio Standard goals. A further goal is to share the experience
of these communities and the developing CCA process with other
interested communities in California.
Objectives of the Proposed Project:
- Develop a template of analytical and cost models that can
be used by a variety of local governments in California in
assessing ways to implement CCA that significantly exceed the
state's RPS goals.
- Prepare a document that clarifies the costs, credits, rules
and protocols being established by the CPUC for implementing
- Develop a CCA Pre-feasibility Study Model.
- Complete detailed CCA feasibility analyses for up to three
communities or groups of communities that demonstrate the use
of the template and ways in which these communities can significantly
exceed the state's twenty-percent RPS goal. The project will
include at least one community in each of the three investor-owned
electric utility service territories (PG&E, Southern California
Edison, San Diego Gas & Electric).
- Develop a guidebook, fact sheets, and workshops for local
government elected leaders and staff that share the lessons
learned by the pilot communities.
