Choose Affordable, Renewable Energy for Your Community

Community Choice Aggregation (CCA) allows communities or groups of communities to pool their electricity demand in order to purchase power on behalf of their residents, businesses, and municipal accounts.

Indicate Your Interest in CCA

Complete the form below to indicate your interest in using CCA to adopt affordable, renewable energy in your community. A WWF representative will contact you soon to answer any questions you may have.

CCA is permissible by law in six states: California, Illinois, Ohio, Massachusetts, New Jersey, and Rhode Island. Depending on the state, customers are automatically enrolled in CCA after either a successful public referendum or a vote by their elected municipal representatives. In either case, customers may opt out and return to their customary utility service.

CCA is a flexible model that offers numerous benefits to participating communities, including:

  • Inclusion or integration of more renewable energy sources
  • Competitive rates and often significant rate savings
  • Customer choice
  • Cleaner, more efficient energy supply
  • Local jobs creation and economic development

Local Renewable Leaders

Both large and small municipalities have leveraged CCA programs to achieve local objectives, whether rate savings, reliability, carbon emission reduction, utility reform, or jobs creation. These programs reflect the values of their governing boards and served communities. Communities benefitting from CCA include:
