Community Choice Aggregation (CCA) is a program that allows local governments to procure electricity and/or natural gas supply on behalf of customers in their communities from a provider other than the current utility. Under CCA, municipalities and their residents and businesses, have a choice over where the power they purchase comes from, potentially allowing for a greener power supply and lower energy rates. CCA can also provide discounts and incentives for various products and services. The Town Board is considering legislation that would enable exploring if CCA could benefit East Hampton. The first public hearing on CCA enabling legislation was held on June 4, 2020.
