With Community Choice Aggregation (CCA), all Long Island residents may soon have an alternative to controlled utility-based energy rates. The New York State Public Service Commission has passed an order to allow a Community Energy Aggregation (CEA) pilot program. Now, towns and cities on Long Island, as well as Westchester County, can form a municipally endorsed energy-savings program for natural gas and electricity.
This pilot program will enable residents and small commercial consumers in Nassau and Suffolk Counties to pool their buying power and negotiate for lower rates. Through such collective leverage, communities and government leaders can also choose renewable energy generation, avoiding the tax burden of an aging power-delivery system.
