Placer County and the cities of Colfax, Rocklin, Auburn, and Loomis have formed a Joint Powers Authority (JPA) for the purpose of administering a new Community Choice Aggregation (CCA) program. The new JPA is called Sierra Valley Energy Authority (SVEA). The purpose of SVEA is to take local control over the electricity supply from the existing investor-owned utility and provide economic, social, and environmental benefits tailored to the ratepayers within the participating service areas.
The Sierra Valley Energy Authority is expected to employ up to 30 staff members. It is anticipated that new employees will start in September and the organization will grow to about 20 in the first quarter of 2018 with remaining growth to occur over the following one to three years. The facility for this operation will likely be in Rocklin or Loomis and comprise 6,000 to 8,000 square feet. The office environment will be a mix of enclosed offices and systems furniture cubicles. The enterprise is intended to be entrepreneurial, high performing, lean, and agile.

Up to two one-year extensions may be negotiated within 90 days of contract expiration.
