ABOUT US

Your local, community-owned
electricity provider.

Central Coast Community Energy (CCCE) is a Community Choice Energy agency established by local communities to source clean and renewable electricity for Monterey, San Benito and Santa Cruz counties and now parts of San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara counties while retaining your utility provider’s traditional role delivering power and maintaining electric infrastructure as well as billing. 

Central Coast Community Energy is committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions through local control of utility scale renewable electricity generation provided at competitive rates and the implementation of innovative energy programs that facilitate the electrification of the transportation and built environments. CCCE promotes long-term electric rate stability and energy security while reducing reliance on fossil fuels and stimulating the local economy. 

In its first first two years of operations, CCCE has contracted for 453.3 MW of long term eligible renewable resources and 192.7 MW of battery storage in furtherance of California’s 100% GHG-free by 2045 goal. Since beginning operations, CCCE saved customers an estimated $17.2M, and following the COVID-19 pandemic, provided immediate financial relieve by deferring $22.4M in generation charges for all customers. CCCE has allocated over $12M toward energy program in addition to establishing a $25M Energy Resiliency program in response to the investor owned utilities Public Safety Power Shutoffs – and we are just getting started
