Community choice energy (CCE) is an alternative to the investor-owned utility energy supply system that allows local entities to aggregate individual customers within a defined service area and secure alternative energy suppliers on their behalf.  The primary goals of CCEs have been to lower costs for energy customers and allow greater control of the energy mix, particularly through increasing the proportion of renewable energy that is supplied. 

This memorandum explains how CCE programs are implemented and compares product offerings and rates to the incumbent electric utility in select jurisdictions. The memorandum concludes by identifying some of the challenges and opportunities of community choice energy programs.
