What is a CCA Leader?
• Evangelist for a better energy future of
• Affordability.
• Competition.
• Environmental Responsibility.
• Communicator of What, How, Why and
How Much.
Leaders Explain a CCA
A CCA is a cooperative. More precisely, it is an energy-only electrical cooperative.
A City (or County) in California pools (aggregates) its energy load into a single public and
not-for-profit agency(cooperative) for the purpose of providing an alternative supply of
energy.
Leaders persuade citizens and elected officials that competition leads to affordability and
environmental responsibility. The CCA competes with SDG&E to deliver lower costs, cleaner
energy, and more local economic development.
Leaders explain formation law (AB 117) and protection of the right to form a CCA (SB 790).
Leaders show that the SDG&E will continue to own, operate and maintain the grid.
Customers will receive one bill from SDG&E but with a different rate for energy from the
CCA.
CCA Leaders Build Community Teams
• A CCA Leader will build consensus among
the leaders.
• Those leaders are
• Citizens concerned about ratepayer
treatement.
• Environmentalists and citizen scientists.
• The City Manager and staff.
• The elected council members.
CCA Leaders Find Elected Officials Who
Are Champions of CCA Formation
• In San Diego, those champions today are:
• Lesa Heebner
• Dave Roberts
• Mike Nichols
• Dianne Jacob
• Pam Slater-Price
• Bob Filner
• A CCA leader creates a CCA Champion.
CCA Leaders Develop Resolutions
Calling For CCA Formation
• A CCA Leader proposes a Resolution
calling for the development of the
Implementation Plan as dictated by AB
117 law.
• SDED maintains the Solana Beach
Resolution on its Educational Page
(along with this document).
SDED Supports the Leadership Role with
Tools, Social Networks, and Fundraising
• SDED is the organization in San Diego with
the know-how, networks, State and National
support, and buy-in for the grassroots
creation of one or more CCAs in San Diego.
• SDED seeks out individuals who understand
that time is “running out”.
• CCAs are economic engines for good
providing scale for cleaner energy as the
basis for competition.
