Learn How Community Choice Aggregation Can Power Your Hometown   

Monticello, NY – The Sullivan County Office of Sustainable Energy will hold an informational session for Community Choice Aggregation (CCA) on Tuesday, April 3, from 10 a.m. to noon in the Legislative Hearing Room of the Sullivan County Government Center, 100 North Street, Monticello.

Representatives from the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) Communities and Local Government and NY-Sun teams will be on hand to provide an overview of CCA in New York State and to provide insight on the interaction between CCA and Community Distributed Generation projects (CDGs).

“Community Choice Aggregation allows participating local governments to procure energy supply service and distributed energy resources for eligible customers in the community,” explained District 4 Legislator Catherine Owens, chair of the Legislature’s Agriculture and Sustainability Policy Committee. “The CCA initiative is part of New York State’s ‘Reforming the Energy Vision’ (REV), which is Governor Andrew M. Cuomo’s comprehensive energy strategy for New York. REV helps consumers make more informed energy choices, develop new energy products and services, and protect the environment while creating new jobs and economic opportunity throughout the State.”

“Community Choice Aggregation can empower local communities to have more control of their overall energy costs, while encouraging investment in local clean energy development, improving customer choice and value, and protecting our environment,” said Sullivan County Sustainability Coordinator Heather Brown. “It is my hope that local representatives that attend this session will leave with a clear understanding of what CCA is, and that they will feel confident in future discussions and decisions related to this initiative.”

This event is free and open to the public. Town and Village board members are particularly encouraged to attend.  For further information, contact the Sullivan County Office of Sustainable Energy at (845) 807-0578.
