Client Relationship Manager at Mega Energy, Katy Vescio spoke with NewsChannel13 via Skype to discuss their "Community Choice Aggregation," that 13 communities across the Capital Region are participating in.
Mega Energy provided us with this information:
Community Choice Aggregation, or CCA, is an electricity purchasing program for residents and small businesses. CCA harnesses the buying power of thousands of individual households across several cities, towns, and villages. With many communities working together, we're able to obtain competitive rates and better contract terms and conditions.
What are the benefits of CCA?
Which Capital Region communities are exploring CCA?
· Cities of Albany, Schenectady, Troy, Saratoga Springs, Glens Falls and Watervliet
· Towns of Bethlehem, Guilderland, Niskayuna, New Scotland
· Villages of Altamont, Voorheesville, and Kinderhook.
How do people participate in this program?
How does your organization work with these communities?
· The Municipal Electric and Gas Alliance is a non-profit that partners with municipalities to develop the CCA program. MEGA provides technical assistance to these communities, and we engage in education and outreach to help explain to residents how the program works.
