According to CPUC’s estimates, 85% of electricity load from the IOUs will be served by other sources such as Community Choice Aggregators and rooftop solar by the mid-2020s.

CCAs have an ambitious vision of procuring power for their customers from new, locally-sited solar, wind, geothermal and other renewable resources in order to boost job creation, support local economies, reduce GHG emissions and fight climate change.

However, at least two obstacles are facing CCAs: they lack credit ratings and there is regulatory uncertainty plaguing surrounding the allocation of costs for utilities’ legacy contracts.

This webinar will focus on some of the key issues surrounding CCA expansion in California and answer questions such as:

  • Will unique risks associated with power purchase agreements with CCAs support renewable project development?
  • Should utilities be forced to continue contracting for power in the face of massive projected load departures to CCAs?
  • What lessons can be learned from community solar?
