City of Oakley residents and business owners, join staff members from your new local electricity provider, MCE, for an insightful community meeting touching on Community Choice Aggregation (CCA) on May 23, 2018.
This local public utility model is making waves throughout the State of California, allowing cities, towns, counties and communities, to greatly reduce their energy related carbon footprints while at the same time helping local economies grow.
On June 6, 2017, the Board of Supervisors adopted an ordinance and resolution to join the Marin Energy Authority’s (MCE) community choice energy/aggregation program (CCE). CCE involves cities, counties, or a joint powers authority composed of cities and counties pooling (“aggregating”) retail electricity customers for the purpose of procuring and selling electricity.
In April, MCE become the primary electricity provider in Concord, Danville, Martinez, Moraga, Oakley, Pinole, Pittsburg, San Ramon, and unincorporated Contra Costa County. MCE currently provides service to Contra Costa residents and businesses in El Cerrito, Lafayette, San Pablo, Richmond and Walnut Creek.
Per California State Law, if residents did not opt out, they were automatically enrolled in MCE. However, you do have the choice to opt out. If you choose to opt out, MCE has shared that it is best to opt out prior to August. After August, there will be a one-time fee required to opt out.
MCE encourages residents to bring their questions.
