Village Explores Community Choice Aggregation

April 21, 2022

The Village of Canton is working with Joule Community Power to offer the Village of Canton Community Power energy program. This community choice aggregation (CCA) program allows the Village to provide residents and small businesses with the benefits of renewable electricity supply.

Formed in partnership with Joule Community Power, a division of Joule Assets, Inc., the Village of Canton Community Power CCA program enables the municipality to pool local electricity demand to leverage the collective buying power of their residents and small businesses. This allows them to secure more favorable terms on their energy supply, protect consumers, and choose renewable generation sources.

The Village is planning to participate in an upcoming bid for a CCA electricity supply rate with an expected program launch date in fall 2022. If the Village selects an electricity supplier, eligible residents and businesses will receive a letter in early fall 2022 with information about the program, their choices, and information about how to opt out.

Public information sessions will be scheduled over the next two months to help residents make informed decisions about this program. These sessions will provide general information, explain the benefits of participation by Village residents and small businesses, and answer any questions.
