Community Choice Aggregation

Freedom Energy and Colonial Power Group (CPG) joined forces to provide an unbeatable value offering to municipal clients and local communities. Clients can benefit from a wide-range of comprehensive energy services including energy procurement, demand management, and renewables in support of unique energy requirements and sustainability objectives for cities and towns, in addition to Community Choice Aggregation (CCA) services.

What is a Community Choice Aggregation Program?

  • The program enters into an electricity supply contract for all residential and business customers currently receiving utility default service within a given municipality.
  • A CCA Program is an optional buying group organized by a municipality or group of municipalities to benefit electric customers.
  • Customers are automatically enrolled, unless they opt-out.
