About the talk:
Mr. Suleiman will discuss Community Choice Energy and the rollout in northern California
About the Speaker:
Community Choice Energy (CCE) is taking the state by a storm. By the end of this year, there will be over two million customers in California that will be served by an entity other than their traditional electric utility like PG&E, and by 2020, the estimate is that 80% of PG&E customers will be switched to this new provider. In this talk, we will shed the light on what is CCE and how does it work with the incumbent utilities. We will explain the unbundling of utility services and how it affects rates and customers. Will explain the organizational structure of these entities and it’s governance process. Also discuss the technical challenges of administering this new entity and how roles and responsibilities are divided between the incumbent utility and the CCE with all the regulatory issues that accompanies these roles. Also what does this all mean to the Architectural and Engineering community designing and implementing electric service to the commercial and residential sectors.
