Background

As part of Governor Cuomo's Reforming the Energy Vision (REV) initiative, the Commission initiated a proceeding to examine enabling Community Choice Aggregation (CCA) programs in New York State and to evaluate potential structures and best practices for such programs. The goals of both REV and retail energy market reform include, among other things, increasing the ability of individuals and communities to manage their energy usage and bills, facilitating wider market based deployment of clean energy including energy efficiency, large-scale renewables and distributed energy resources (DER), and increasing the benefits of retail competition for residential and small non-residential customers. A well developed CCA program, that includes the necessary consumer protection, will create these benefits for participating communities.

On April 21, 2016, the Commission issued its Order Authorizing Framework for Community Choice Aggregation Opt-Out Program, which authorized the establishment of CCA programs by municipalities statewide and articulated the necessary design principles and standards that municipalities must apply in developing and implementing CCA programs for their constituents. The process and requirements for developing a compliant CCA Program were summarized in Appendix D and are referred to as the CCA Rules. The CCA Rules require prospective CCA Administrators file an Implementation Plan and Data Protection Plan for Commission review and approval before they are authorized to implement a CCA Program.

All CCA Orders and filings can be found here in Case #14-M-0224
