Los Angeles County Adopts Opt-out Municipal Electric Aggregation
Los Angeles County's board of supervisors has approved creation of a community choice aggregation, under the Los Angeles Community Choice Energy (LACCE) Authority
The municipal aggregation initially may serve up to 500,000 residences and 200,000 businesses in unincorporated parts of the county who are served by Southern California Edison. Officials in incorporated cities must approve the CCA before their residents may be included
Service will be rolled out in phases, with some 2,000 county-administered accounts being the first to receive service in January 2018. Service to business customers is slated to begin in July 2018
Residential service is to begin in January 2019. To the extent incorporated cities in the county join, the aggregation could serve 1.5 million customers
The board approved $2 million in administrative costs for the CCA program plus $8 million for power supplies for Phase I of the program (county-run properties). The power procured for Phase I shall be the greenest power available at a cost that shall not exceed what the County would have paid SCE were Los Angeles County to have remained an SCE customer.
