La Mesa Draft CCA Study and Public Meeting
The cities of La Mesa, Chula Vista, and Santee have been working in partnership with technical consultants to evaluate the feasibility of Community Choice Aggregation (CCA) programs in our respective cities. Under the CCA model, local governments purchase and manage their community’s electric power supply, while the incumbent investor owned utility continues to provide distribution and billing service. CCAs commonly provide the communities they serve with competitively priced clean energy choices while reinvesting revenues into projects and programs that support the local economy.
The Draft CCA Technical Feasibility Study for Chula Vista, La Mesa and Santee is complete and can be downloaded on the City of La Mesa’s CCA webpage, under "City Documents". Staff and the technical consultants will give a presentation on the results of the Draft Study during the July 15th Environmental Sustainability Commission at 6 pm in the City Manager’s Office Conference Room (8130 Allison Ave, La Mesa). This is a public meeting and anyone is welcome to attend.
Why is La Mesa exploring CCA? In March 2018, City Council adopted La Mesa’s first Climate Action Plan (CAP). The CAP charts a course to cut greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) in half and power the community with 100% clean electricity by 2035. Community Choice Aggregation is a potential mechanism to increase the amount of non-polluting, renewable energy and help the City achieve its target of 100% clean energy.
