Community Choice Energy

Goal: To explore whether a locally run community choice energy (CCE) program is viable for the County of Santa Barbara.

Recent Key Accomplishment

  • In October 2017, the Board of Supervisors directed staff to update the CCE financial feasibility assessment to evaluate the potential viability of a CCE program serving only Santa Barbara County rather than the initial tri-county regional effort. The Santa Barbara County CCE feasibility study results potentially offer a more viable path to CCE for the unincorporated parts of the county and interested cities.
