Learn what Community Choice Aggregation is
Community Choice Aggregation (CCA) is a program that allows cities and counties to buy and/or generate electricity for residents and businesses within their areas.
How does it work?
PG&E continues to partner with the CCA to deliver the electricity through its transmission and distribution system. PG&E also provides meter-reading, billing, maintenance and outage response services.
Identify where CCA programs are available
CCAs continue to grow. The list below includes active CCAs operating within the PG&E service territory in California. Note that CCAs provide electric service only; they don’t provide gas service. If you receive gas service from a Core Transport Agent (CTA), visit our CTA resources page.
