clean energy

Community Choice Aggregation

The County of San Mateo is pursuing research on the feasibility of implementing a Community Choice Aggregation project in San Mateo. The Town is participating.

Community Choice Aggregation - California Assembly Bill 117, passed in 2002, allows California cities and counties to pool the electric load of their residents, businesses and public facilities in order to purchase and develop clean electricity. Community Choice Aggregation is a mechanism by which local governments assume responsibility for providing electrical power for residential and commercial customers in their jurisdiction in partnership with Pacific Gas & Electric Co. (PG&E). Community Choice Aggregation also provides the opportunity to fund and implement a wide variety of energy- related programs of interest to the community.
