Community Choice Energy (CCE)

Community Choice Energy (CCE) allows public agencies to purchase electricity on behalf of customers, as an alternative to investor owned utilities (like PG&E). The goal of a CCE (which is also called community choice aggregation or CCA) is to provide cleaner, greener, and more local electricity to customers. CCA image

East Bay Community Energy (EBCE) will serve Alameda County. EBCE is a community-governed power supplier that will provide clean, renewable electricity to residents and businesses. Berkeley City Council approved joining EBCE on Tuesday, November 1, 2016.

Under EBCE, PG&E will continue to maintain the power grid, respond to outages, and provide billing and customer service. Customers will also have a choice of the renewable content they want to purchase, or whether to continue to purchase power directly from PG&E by opting out EBCE.
