Community Choice Policy
Community Choice Law
The two pieces of legislation that make Community Choice possible in California are AB 117 (Migden, 2002) and SB 790 (Leno, 2011). AB 117 established Community Choice and SB 790 strengthened it by creating a “code of conduct” that the incumbent utilities must adhere to in their activities relative to Community Choice.
Community Choice law, Assembly Bill 117 (Migden), enacted in 2002, can be found in the California Public Utilities Code sections 331.1,381.1, 707 and Code Sections 360 through 380.5. Scroll down to code section 366.2, where the main body of information describing Community Choice can be found. Community Choice law was conceived as a way to salvage a good part of the deregulation experiment of the late 1990s and early 2000s, choice.
Community Choice Guidebook
Produced by the California Energy Commission in 2009 as the product of a multi-year Community Choice pilot project, the CEC-CCA Pilot Project Guidebook is full of useful information. Although it was produced in 2009, it contains fundamental information about Community Choice that does not change over time except by new legislation.
