What is CCA?
How it works

Community Choice Aggregation (CCA) is a program that allows cities, counties and other qualifying governmental entities to purchase and/or generate electricity for their residents and businesses. Once the local CCA is formed, in our case San Diego Community Power, it will purchase and/or generate electricity for customers. The local utility, SDG&E, will continue to deliver electricity and provide meter reading, billing, and maintenance services for CCA customers. Customers will likely not notice any change other than a line item on their utility bill that replaces the SDG&E electric generation charges.

How CCA will work in our communities

San Diego Community Power was formed in October, 2019 in order to achieve 100% renewable energy by 2035. This path will allow the agency to purchase energy on the open market at more competitive rates for customers.

Customer Choice

With SDCP, customers always have the power to choose between power sources, rate options, energy programs and electric service providers. These choices allow customers to determine what works best for them.


Competitive Rates Help Lower Costs

SDCP is committed to offering cleaner power at competitive rates. Rates for SDCP customers will be posted starting in early 2021, prior to customer enrollments.


Local Control
SDCP is governed by a five-member Board representing its member cities. The Board sets policies and rates, approves special programs and directs how revenue will be reinvested locally. SDCP is also forming a Community Advisory Committee to advise the Board on local energy programs and other operational matters.


Community Development
There are many ways SDCP will support economic and community development across the region.  Examples include investments in local energy projects, customer rate savings and the creation of new energy-sector jobs. SDCP plans to adopt policies that support local hiring, sustainable business practices and a local, diverse workforce.
