Not-for-profit local power agency
We will establish a Community Choice Aggregation (CCA), allowing the city to form a not-for-profit local power agency that bundles the buying power of residents and business in Berkeley. The local power agency can build or fund local clean energy projects, buy renewable energy on the market, offer energy-efficiency services and incentives to customers and set electricity rates, which will increase investment in local clean energy projects and increase local control over the energy mix used to produce electricity.

Berkeley’s Resilience Strategy – the first in the Bay Area – is designed to advance community preparedness for some of Berkeley’s most pressing physical, social, and economic challenges.
