Purpose, Membership and Terms
In 2018, the San Luis Obispo City Council adopted climate action as a major City goal, with a long-term target of eventually becoming a net-zero carbon city. The Council’s studies that began in 2015 led to their decision to create (documents linked below) a Community Choice Energy (CCE) program as a key initiative to achieving this goal. The City of Morro Bay has joined San Luis Obispo as a partner in the CCE program. Community Choice Energy, sometimes referred to as “Community Choice Aggregation,” brings local control, freedom of choice and competition into the electricity marketplace by allowing local governments to pool the electricity demand of their communities, purchasing power with higher renewable content and lower greenhouse gas emissions, resulting in competitive, often lower electricity rates and keeps ratepayer revenues within the CCE communities where they can be reinvested. The name of the local CCE program is Central Coast Community Energy (CCCE).
- City of San Luis Obispo - Resolution approving the joint powers agreement establishing Central Coast Community Energy
- City of San Luis Obispo - Ordinance authorizing the implementation of a Community Choice Aggregation Program
All members of the public to come contribute to their meeting.
