Community Choice Energy is a new way to get cleaner electricity to local homes and businesses at competitive prices and have greater local control of how electricity is produced. Three central coast counties (Ventura, Santa Barbara, and San Luis Obispo) have joined together to explore Community Choice Energy and plan to release a feasibility study this summer. Angus Simmons and Linda Hillman will provide an update on current central coast and statewide trends in CCE.

Linda Hillman is an attorney and CPA whose career includes federal service (SEC and GAO), big four public accounting, private sector financial management, private practice of law, and county fiscal and operational management. Angus Simmons has served as a career diplomat with the U.S. Department of State.

Sixty percent of California residents who aren’t already served by municipal utilities could be served by CCEs by 2020, according to an analysis by the Center for Climate Protection, an nonprofit that sees community choice as a potent tool to reduce greenhouse gases. Five CCEs (Marin Clean Energy, Sonoma Clean Power, Lancaster Choice Energy, Clean Power San Francisco and Peninsula Clean Energy purchase energy for 915,000 customers.
