Taking action at the local, state, and federal level
LEAN Energy US is dedicated to accelerating the country’s transition to clean and renewable power, support competition and customer choice in the energy sector, and maintain affordable electricity rates. We provide information resources and market expertise to a national network of local governments, commercial and non-profit organizations, advocacy groups, and individuals wishing to pursue or expand CCA in their states and/or communities.
LEAN Energy US actively supports legislation and regulatory policies that protect and enhance CCA communities across the nation.
As part of our continued efforts to advocate for the development of CCA across the country, LEAN Energy US sent a Joint Letter of Support to federal agencies on October 17th, 2023. This letter encourages the U.S. Department of Energy, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, and the U.S. Department of Transportation to further support Community Choice Aggregation programs.
Approx. 70 companies, organizations, communities, advocacy groups and individuals signed the letter.
After many months of research, surveys, focus groups, and industry leader interviews, LEAN's study shows the CCA model as an efficient, equitable and cost-effective policy tool for providing competitive pricing and renewable power to a large number of electricity consumers in the United States. The study reviews state-by-state market status, national impacts, and most importantly, an analysis covering the potential of CCAs to accelerate state and national governments' environmental, social and economic goals in the energy sector.
LEAN Energy US and Vrinda Inc. organized an engaging webinar with a panel of experts from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and energy industry.
