It is the only nonprofit that serves to bring clean energy CCA nationwide.

To help policymakers create policies so residents and businesses can buy clean electricity as a group.

who can take action

Governments, businesses, nonprofits, and individuals can join as members.

outcome

As of 2015, six states have laws enabling CCA: California, Illinois, Ohio, Rhode Island, Massachusetts and New Jersey.
