Residential Customers are Invited to Explore New CCCE Customer Energy Portal

As Central Coast Community Energy enters the final phase of testing for its new Customer Energy Portal, residential customers receiving CCCE service in PG&E service area are invited to explore detailed information about their electric generation charges, current rate plan, and energy usage. Through the portal, customers can also review and select service offerings such as 3Cprime, CCCE’s 100% renewable offering, and potentially track energy program application status. 
The Customer Energy Portal is scheduled to be available to commercial, agricultural, and CCCE Member Agency customers in coming months. The final test phase enables residential customers to share general feedback, identify possible technical glitches, and make recommendations for future portal enhancements.
Residential customers can access the portal here. CCCE account information is required to register an account in the system. Participating customers are asked to provide feedback via this brief survey.
As with other CCCE initiatives and innovations, engaging with customers and involving them in the decision-making process plays an important role on the path to successful implementation. The benefits of locally controlled electricity begin with community collaboration and result in shared benefits. CCCE thanks all customers who participate in the Customer Energy Portal rollout process.

CCCE service has started for the City of Buellton

Let’s celebrate the new year with terrific news! CCCE service has started for the City of Buellton. This enrollment brings the total number of customers served by CCCE to nearly 440,000. More customers translates to more “buying power” when sourcing clean and renewable energy, and more opportunities for each customer to be part of the Central Coast’s transition to clean energy by participating in CCCE Energy Programs.
