PG&E will lose 42% of its load by the end of this year. How is that possible? Community Choice Aggregators are turning California’s electricity world upside-down. The entire Bay Area is blanketed by active CCAs. But it’s not just California – six other states have active programs, including Illinois, Massachusetts, New York, and Ohio. Our Q1 meeting helps you understand the amazing pace of change, the risks of CCA growth, and how CCAs affect you as an energy professional and as a consumer. You’ll hear about:
- How MCE, California’s first CCA, is adding services while managing through the latest storm of regulatory changes (Michael Callahan of MCE)
- How East Bay Community Energy is establishing itself after the 2018 launch (Dierdre Sanders of EBCE)
- How CCAs affect commercial customers and how those customers are reacting (Tom Arnold of Gridium)
- How CCAs can promote local renewable energy to address climate change, social justice, and healthy communities (Jessica Tovar of Local Clean Energy Alliance)
