San Diego faces new challenges in creating a Community Choice Aggregation (CCA) program. SDG&E, the city’s incumbent utility, has launched a new investor-funded marketing arm aimed at derailing any progress towards the creation of a CCA.
“From SDG&E’s perspective, the situation is pretty clear-cut. As more cities embrace community choice aggregation, this means fewer customers and revenues for the investor-owned power provider. And it must really scare the utility to go from monopolistic control of California’s energy supply to unfettered competition.”
