POWER WITH PURPOSE:

Community Choice Energy Best Practices Symposium Tuesday, June 5th

Plus Pre-Symposium Events Monday, June 4th

The Center for Climate Protection, Local Government Commission, and the Local Government Sustainable Energy Coalition are once again bringing the Business of Local Energy Symposium to California for its fourth year. Join Community Choice Agency (CCA) experts and leaders from across the state on June 5th for a day-long event about accelerating CCA adoption, sharing best practices, and creating more benefits for local communities.

This is a watershed year for Community Choice in California. There are 9 operational Community Choice Agencies with another 10 likely to be online in the next year. They are emerging as a powerful force, but there are regulatory and legislative uncertainties which must be proactively addressed. Community Choice Agencies are also still clarifying their purpose, developing their business models, defining themselves, and differentiating themselves from the investor-owned utilities. The Symposium will explore these opportunities and challenges with experts in the field.

Please join us for a reception after the Symposium from 5:00 to 6:30 pm.
