What’s a CCA?

Community Choice Aggregations (CCAs) are local organizations that purchase energy from a variety of sources on behalf of local residents. Electricity delivery, management, maintenance, and billing are still performed by your familiar utility, such as PG&E, SCE, or SDG&E. In energy industry lingo, the function of the CCA is to be the “Load Serving Entity.”

Consumers are usually enrolled in CCAs automatically. You must take action to opt out if you do not wish to participate.

I’m enrolled in a CCA. Can I still participate with OhmConnect?

OhmConnect is currently able to integrate with some, but not all, CCAs.

If your OhmConnect account is prompting you to disenroll from a conflicting Load Serving Entity, that means you are enrolled in a CCA that does not currently work with OhmConnect. You must opt out of your CCA if you would like to reach Silver status and get paid to save energy.

We also encourage you to contact your CCA and indicate that you'd like OhmConnect to serve as your Demand Response provider. This will improve the chances that you will be able to participate in both OhmConnect and your CCA in the future.
