Oakley Invites Public to Workshop Regarding Community Choice Energy


On April 5, the City of Oakley invites the public to a workshop regarding a community choice energy program.

Community Choice Energy (CCE) is a program that enables local governments to aggregate
electricity demand within their jurisdictions in order to procure electricity for their customers
while maintaining the existing electricity provider, Pacific Gas & Electric Company, for
customer billing, transmission and distribution services. The State of California passed
legislation in 2002 (Assembly Bill 117) that permits local agencies to form CCE programs for
their communities. The City of Oakley City Council is currently exploring three options: 1)
join MCE Clean Energy (https://www.mcecleanenergy.org/), 2) join East Bay Community
Energy (http://www.ebce.org/), or 3) remain with PG&E.
City Staff, along with MCE Clean Energy and East Bay Community Energy representatives
will be hosting a public workshop to explain each program and look for comments and
questions from the public.
Meeting Time: Wednesday, April 5, 2017 at 6:00 p.m.
Meeting Location: City Hall Council Chambers located at 3231 Main Street, Oakley
