Explore the latest CCA market insights and policy updates in all 10 CCA-enabled states.

Ten states – California, Illinois, Maryland (Montgomery County pilot), Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Rhode Island and Virginia – have enacted Community Choice Aggregation (CCA) legislation that empowers local governments to aggregate the electricity loads of residents, businesses, and/or municipal facilities. Pennsylvania has a decades old state statute that allows boroughs to purchase electricity on behalf of their residents.

CCA programs reflect the values of their governing boards, the communities they serve, and the states in which they operate.  Most emphasize reducing the cost of electricity.  Some also focus on reducing greenhouse gas emissions, establishing new revenue streams to support local energy programs, or creating local jobs, and some are designed to accomplish several of these goals simultaneously.
