THIS IS A TEST

City of Oakley Community Choice Energy Public Workshop

Community Choice Energy (CCE) is a program that enables local governments to aggregate electricity demand within their jurisdictions in order to procure electricity for their customers while maintaining the existing electricity provider, Pacific Gas & Electric Company, for customer billing, transmission and distribution services. The State of California passed legislation in 2002 (Assembly Bill 117) that permits local agencies to form CCE programs for their communities.  The City of Oakley City Council is currently exploring three options:  1) join MCE Clean Energy (https://www.mcecleanenergy.org/), 2) join East Bay Community Energy (http://www.ebce.org/), or 3) remain with PG&E.

City Staff, along with MCE Clean Energy and East Bay Community Energy representatives will be hosting a public workshop to explain each program and look for comments and questions from the public.

Meeting Time:  Wednesday April 5, 2017 at 6:00 PM

Meeting Location:  At the Civic Center Council Chambers located at 3231 Main Street, Oakley, CA 94561.
