Community Choice Aggregation Program

<div><div><div property="content:encoded"> <p>The City continues to consider ways to increase the use of renewable energy to reach 100 percent citywide in 2035. One option is through a Community Choice Aggregation (CCA). CCAs give residents and businesses an opportunity to choose who will purchase energy on their behalf, either the CCA or the incumbent utility, and the renewable content of their electricity. The City has also conducted research on other programs that could assist in achieving the renewable energy goal. The other program is described in a proposal submitted by San Diego Gas & Electric through a selective process. This proposal can be viewed in the table below titled "Request for Proposals". </p> <p><span><a href="https://www.sandiego.gov/sites/default/files/cosd_cca_ppt.pdf" type="application/pdf; length=662142"><span><img alt="PDF icon" title="application/pdf" src="https://www.sandiego.gov/modules/file/icons/application-pdf.png"></span> Community Choice Aggregation Overview Presentation</a></span></p> <p><span><a href="https://www.sandiego.gov/sites/default/files/cca_flyer_2-sided_eng_spanish_may_2019.pdf" type="application/pdf; length=1059542"><span><img alt="PDF icon" title="application/pdf" src="https://www.sandiego.gov/modules/file/icons/application-pdf.png"></span> Read frequently asked questions</a> related to the City’s 100 percent renewable energy initiative </span>(available in English and Spanish). </p> <h2>Information</h2> <ul> <li> <p>Nov. 19, 2018 - MRW issued a memorandum to the City of San Diego describing the pro forma update from the CCA feasibility study.
