Power procurement lies at the heart of why Community Choice Energy is a great idea. California’s Community Choice Energy business model allows local government entities such as RCEA to become the default procurer of electric power for our residents and businesses. Rather than being subject to decisions made by regulators in Sacramento and executives at PG&E headquarters in San Francisco, local governments including Humboldt’s can now bring those decisions home. Our Board of Directors, made up of locally elected officials, decide what kind of power we buy, and under what terms we buy it. Community members have input on these decisions by attending our open monthly Board meetings or contacting their Board members.
