We are very pleased to share that on Tuesday, April 18, 2017, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors voted unanimously to approve the creation of Los Angeles Community Choice Energy (LACCE).

In a joint motion authored by Supervisors Sheila Kuehl and Mark Ridley-Thomas, the Board approved the LACCE Joint Powers Agreement that will govern the program, and the requisite $10 Million in startup funding.

Cities may participate in the launch of the program if they approve the LACCE Joint Powers Agreement within the next 180 days. The County is now working with and strongly encouraging cities to join this new and exciting regional initiative.

March 2017

Cities and Los Angeles County are in the process of finalizing the Joint Powers Agreement (JPA) that will govern LACCE.

On March 3, 2017, the County held a public meeting and presented the draft JPA to members of the public and stakeholders. In response, the County received six separate public comments with suggestions and recommendations to revise the draft JPA. The County and cities met on March 21 and March 28, 2017, to review the public comments and negotiate any revisions.

The Final Draft of the JPA is expected to be made public in early April.
