How 3CE Works
Powered By Community Choice
Thirty-four communities joined Central Coast Community Energy (3CE) with the shared goal of gaining more control over their electricity needs: to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, support the growth of clean and renewable energy, and access additional economic and environmental benefits.

What is “community choice” energy?
3CE follows the Community Choice Aggregator or “CCA” model, a community-focused, not-for-profit model that allows for greater commitment to clean and renewable energy while supporting community reinvestment for affordable and fair rates and equitable access to clean-energy resources.
More than 11 million Californians are served by 24 community choice energy agencies, accounting for nearly a quarter of the state’s electricity load. Collectively, CCAs are significantly contributing to a cleaner, more reliable grid.
