Community Choice: Power with Purpose

Community Choice Agency (CCA) experts and leaders from across the state convened on June 5th for a day-long event about accelerating CCA adoption, sharing best practices, and creating more benefits for our communities. There was also a pre-symposium workshop on the afternoon of June 4th on distributed energy resource projects that build local resiliency, provide unique customer services and contribute to local economic development.

Thank you to all who participated in this informative and inspiring event!

The Symposium is organized in coordination with our partners, Local Government Commission and Local Government Sustainable Energy Coalition:


Keynote Speaker Dr. Dan Kammen

Dr. Dan Kammen (pictured below) will deliver the keynote address about current trends and likely future realities in the energy market and how those may impact the development of Community Choice Agencies.
