Community choice aggregation (CCA) is becoming a more widespread method for local areas across America to source electricity, according to the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), and there are pros and cons to consider in deciding if it’s the right choice.

Under CCA programs, cities and local governments generate or buy electricity most often from renewable energy sources based on the needs of their residents and businesses, according to NREL, which notes that CCAs are a hybrid between municipal utilities and standard investor-owned utilities.

Under a CCA program, the CCA purchases the power, while the investor-owned utility maintains the grid and provides customer service, NREL says.
