Del Mar takes first steps to explore CCA

October 7, 2016 – The Coast News Group – Bianca Kaplanek— Del Mar started the process to possibly bring Community Choice Aggregation, or CCA, to the county’s smallest city, unanimously adopting at the Oct. 3 meeting a resolution stating interest in exploring the feasibility of the renewable energy program.

A required first step in the process, the move allows the city to request electric load data from San Diego Gas & Electric to evaluate viability.

That information will help determine if further exploration is worthwhile. If so, Del Mar would join other interested cities to draft a request for proposals for a feasibility study.

Officials from Oceanside, Encinitas, Carlsbad, Poway and Escondido are exploring the possibility of bringing Community Choice Aggregation, also known as Community Choice Energy, to their respective cities.

Those jurisdictions are looking for partners to likely form a Joint Powers Authority.
