Town of Nelson Explores Residential Bulk Electricity Purchasing Program


Program will help lower residential electricity rates and protect consumers from predatory marketers

Residents of the Town of Nelson are encouraged to learn about Community Choice Aggregation (CCA), the new residential bulk electricity purchasing program at a public education session to be held at Town Hall on Saturday, October 28, 2017 from 10:30 to noon. Residents are encouraged to bring their questions and electricity bills.

The Town Board passed a resolution to explore Community Choice Aggregation. CCA is a new opportunity in the state that allows cities, towns, and villages to pool the electricity accounts of residents and small businesses within their municipal boundaries. The bulk purchasing of electricity increases a consumer’s individual buying power, which will result in lower electricity rates for residents.

CCA Programs also help protect residents from bad energy deals. Additionally, communities have the power to customize their programs based on their values and priorities, such as sourcing renewable, ‘green’ energy. Consumers who do not wish to participate in the program may opt-out, remaining with their current utility.

The Municipal Electric and Gas Alliance (MEGA) has been selected by the Town of Nelson to fulfill the role of CCA Administrator, overseeing the creation, development, and implementation of the program. No taxpayer or government funds will be used in the creation or operation of the program.

Join representatives from MEGA and the Town Board at the public education session on October 28, 2017 or visit megacca.org to learn more.
