Community Choice Aggregation (or CCA) is a way for municipalities to negotiate with and engage default electricity providers for service to residential customers. It’s a kind of “bulk purchasing” model that can lower price volatility, may save consumers money, and allows towns and cities to create electricity purchase options that work best for their communities, including building in more local/regional and renewable energy sourcing if that’s desired. Through CCA programs, the investor-owned utilities, such as Eversource or National Grid, continue to provide transmission and billing services. Acton is engaged in launching a CCA program.
- Monthly Green Acton Meetings are usually on the 2nd Tuesday of the month at the Acton Memorial Library. This is a great way to meet other Green Acton members and plug in to the work we are doing.
