About CalCCA 

The California Community Choice Association (CalCCA) is a non-profit trade association representing Community Choice Aggregators (CCAs).

History 

CalCCA was launched in 2016 by the first six Community Choice Aggregators (CCAs) in California: CleanPowerSF, Lancaster Choice Energy, MCE, Peninsula Clean Energy, Silicon Valley Clean Energy, and Sonoma Clean Power. Today, our membership includes 24 CCAs operating in California as well as several emerging CCA communities. Our members are successfully and reliably serving upwards of 14 million customers in more than 200 towns, cities, and counties in California – and those numbers are set to grow as more communities move ahead with CCA programs.
