It’s clear government-controlled energy, or Community Choice Aggregation, is not delivering on its promises to provide greener and cheaper energy. CCAs are not delivering on the fundamental need of reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
So why are we seeing more CCAs, aka Community Choice Energy, surface in California? Why is the San Diego City Council considering forming what would be one of the largest government-controlled energy programs in the state? And just who is behind this scheme?
As San Diego’s former mayor, Jerry Sanders, pointed out recently, government-controlled energy programs are surfacing because cities are being forced to try and implement their own Climate Action Plans. But CCAs fall well short of achieving the goal of these plans: 100 percent renewable energy.
