CCE Background

The CCE program has been years in the making. Learn more about the research and community engagement that led to our CCE launch.

Benefits of a Community Choice Program

Our CCE program will give Humboldt County residents and businesses increased control over our sources of electricity and reduce electricity rates. Every customer will have the option to participate in our baseline program, opt up to 100% renewables, or opt out of the program entirely.  

Program Summary

Community choice energy (CCE) allows California cities, counties, or joint powers agencies to purchase electricity on behalf of the customers in their territories.
