Community Choice Energy for Boston: Implementation Update

On Oct. 4, 2017, the City Council voted unanimously to adopt Community Choice Energy (CCE) in Boston. CCE would allow for bulk purchasing of electricity for all residents, which would mean lower rates and more renewables. The Council co-sponsors of CCE, Matt O’Malley and Michelle Wu, filed a hearing order on Jan. 24, 2018, calling for formation of a CCE Advisory Committee to guide and oversee implementation of the ordinance.

Watch the video of Councilor O’Malley’s brief presentation of the implementation hearing order at the Jan. 24 Council meeting here.
