Community Choice Aggregation, or CCA, is a program available within the service areas of investor-owned utilities, such as PG&E, which allows cities and counties to purchase and/or generate electricity for their residents and businesses. Under CCA, PG&E continues to deliver the electricity through its transmission and distribution system and provide meter reading, billing, maintenance, and outage response services.
To learn more about CCA, see frequently asked questions or call PG&E at 1-866-743-0335.

Within PG&E's service territory there are two active CCAs. These include Marin Clean Energy (MCE) and Sonoma Clean Power (SCP).
Marin Clean Energy
MCE is a not-for-profit public agency that offers 50-100% renewable energy for its customers. MCE’s service area includes Marin County, unincorporated Napa County and the cities of Benicia, El Cerrito, Richmond, and San Pablo.
MCE has provided service to customers since 2010. Customers who choose to opt out or change their participation level in MCE service will need to contact MCE.
Gas services are not provided by MCE, and continue with your regular provider.
For more information regarding MCE, please contact 1-888-632-3674 or visit their website at: mceCleanEnergy.org.
Sonoma Clean Power
SCP is a Community Choice Aggregation (CCA) program, and has been the official electricity provider for Sonoma County since 2014. SCP serves all areas of Sonoma County with the exception of the city of Healdsburg, and is a not-for-profit public agency governed by a Board of elected officials and representatives from the participating cities/areas in the program.
Customers who would like more information or who choose to opt-out of SCP and return to PG&E for electricity generation services can do so by calling SCP 1-855-202-2139 or online at: sonomacleanpower.org.
Please Note: PG&E cannot accept opt-out requests.
If you want to opt out of a CCA program and have received notice(s) from a CCA that your electric service will be served by a CCA, you must submit your opt-out request to the CCA directly. Please note that an opt-out request must be submitted to your CCA whether your area is transitioning to the CCA for the first time or if you start a new electric service within an existing CCA area. Customers may only opt out of an established CCA program by contacting their CCA.
You may opt out by contacting MCE at 1-888-632-3674 or you may opt out online at: www.mceCleanEnergy.org
You may opt out by contacting Sonoma Clean Power (SCP) at
1-855-202-2139 or you may opt out online at: www.SonomaCleanPower.org
Under a CCA program, PG&E will continue to bill you for electricity delivery (non-generation charges). Your CCA provider will bill you for electric generation, which is included in your monthly PG&E bill.
