Choice & Competition
Community choice aggregation provides choice and enables market competition for ratepayers resulting in better service for the residents of SLO County, whichever power provider they choose.
Long Term Electrical Rate Stability
Once renewable energy is installed the sunlight provides a hedge against the increasing cost of other, more volatile, energy sources.
Local Control & Accountability
CCAs operate as business entities that are focused on community benefits and directed by local elected officials, which ensures accountability, transparency, and opportunities for public participation. Investor-owned utilities are accountable to shareholders and operate to maximize profit. Within a CCA, customers can choose to continue purchasing their power from PG&E.
Local Jobs and a Strong Economy
Local clean energy creates careers that are fulfilling, financially rewarding, can sustain families, and build a stronger more prosperous community.
Clean Energy & Local Self-Reliance
We can develop local renewable energy resources to meet our own needs and export clean power to more heavily populated counties. CCAs are able to lead the transition to a cleaner, more reliable, and resilient energy system.
