New Jersey towns can offer cleaner energy that's more affordable for everyone.
Community choice aggregation allows municipalities or counties to bulk purchase electricity on behalf of their residents, while the local utility continues to provide billing and maintaining power lines through the existing service network. Anyone can choose to opt out of a CCA program if they wish to continue receiving electricity from their current provider of a different third-party provider.
Originally, CCAs were developed to reduce and stabilize electricity rates through bulk purchasing. Recently, CCA has been used all across the country as a tool to meet desire for renewable energy options and reducing reliance on climate-altering fossil fuels.
Communities using CCA programs are giving their residents a real opportunity to receive cleaner energy and lower electricity bills. This innovative program is quickly increasing access to clean, renewable energy for residents all over the state.
