Albany prioritizes renewables with new CCA program, looks to recruit more municipalities
The City of Albany is joining a growing list of communities in New York State’s Capital Region who are participating in Community Choice Aggregation (CCA), a bulk electricity buying program that offers businesses and residents access to 100 percent renewable energy, localizes energy decision-making and creates more consumer choice.
In March, Albany's city council voted to approve a law that will automatically enroll residents in the CCA, which will rely heavily on renewable energy sources.
The City will be partnering with 13 other Capital Region communities in the program, to be developed and implemented by the Municipal Electric & Gas Alliance - MEGA, a not-for-profit local development corporation based in Ithaca.
“As a CCA administrator, MEGA has expanded their role to help local governments offer the power of aggregation to their residents,” Katy Vescio, MEGA Client Relationship Manager, told New Project Media. “It started out as a pilot in Westchester County and once that was successful the Public Service Commission (PSC) said other administrators can operate CCAs statewide. Right now in New York State, residents can go out in the marketplace, look at different suppliers, shop on their own and choose the one they want to buy electricity from. What CCA aims to achieve is enabling local governments and communities to have conversations about where their electricity comes from, to make a decision at the local level.”
New York's CCA program was authorized by the PSC in 2016, with MEGA administrating the first program outside of the original pilot last year in the state’s Southern Tier region.
