Southampton Town Appoints Community Choice Aggregation Administrator

Aug 21, 2019 11:24 AM

The Southampton Town Board, last week, appointed an administrator to walk the town through the steps of establishing a Community Choice Aggregation program, often referred to as CCA.

Joule Assets, a company based in Bedford Hills, was selected to look into the benefits or downfalls of selecting an alternative gas and electricity supplier for the residents of Southampton.

As the administrator, Joule will lead all of the research efforts, that will ultimately help the town move toward its goal of 100 percent renewable sourced energy by 2025.

The town requested proposals for a CCA administrator in April, and the only bid received was from Joule Assets.

The company specializes in working with municipalities that want to create a CCA program.

Under the program, municipalities will likely be able to provide price stability for its residents, solicit bids from power and gas companies, and stipulate how much energy comes from wind farms, solar panels or any other renewable source.

When the town decided to move toward CCA in February, it was under the condition that it would not be committed, and before appointing Joule Assets as the CCA administrator, Town Supervisor Jay Schneiderman wanted to ensure that the same prevailed.

The process of moving toward CCA allows the town to vet its options in terms of pricing, providers and energy use and to gather as much information as possible before making a final decision.
