Community choice aggregation efforts for power supplies gaining steam in the U.S.

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Utility Dive:A renewed national expansion of community choice aggregation (CCA) is raising ambitions for transforming the U.S. power system.On the heels of an explosion of customer choice in California over the last three years, the slowly growing aggregation market in Massachusetts is accelerating. In New York, a new version of aggregation is emerging. Customers in traditional markets like Illinois and Ohio are looking for new services from their aggregators. And national CCA organizations want to bring the choice to more states.CCAs led by municipal governments were created to leverage the buying power of large groups of electricity users to get lower electricity prices and meet other customer demands. In deregulated power market states, the newest aggregations are demanding the power sector meet grassroots customer demand for renewable, distributed and — increasingly — local generation. “Customers want more choice and more ways to green the grid, and aggregations offer both,” Shawn Marshall, executive director of national aggregation advocacy group LEAN Energy, told Utility Dive. “Overturning the status quo is not easy, but we are seeing a lot of interest.”In states with legislation that enables aggregation, momentum is growing. Aggregation’s popularity is softening utility resistance. Renewables developers’ initial concerns about its creditworthiness are transmuting into commitments to make deals happen.One conflict aggregation still must face is the gap between the power system’s reliance on bulk and diversified generation and the dream of a power system comprised entirely of local resources.More: As CCAs take over utility customers, local generation emerges as the next big growth driver Community choice aggregation efforts for power supplies gaining steam in the U.S.last_img read more

Oxford held Chase to 2 points in fourth quarter.The game had just three free throws shot in the game.Oxford coach Kyle Green comments:We did not play very well last night offensively. We were 3 of 18 from the floor in the first half, all in the paint. We looked tight early and did not finish inside. Defensively, we were able to clamp down a little bit. Daelyn Haskins did a great job defensively last night. He’s not going to be a big scorer for us, but as far as being a point guard who defends and distributes the ball, he’s one of the best I’ve had. He understands his role. Catlin and Williams picked it up in the second half and gave us a boost. Grant Smith came off the bench and gave us some quality minutes. We were able to battle and win an ugly game and sometimes you have to do that. Like I tell the boys, sometimes you aren’t going to shoot it well, but defense is one of the things you can control, its something that no matter what’s going on, can be there for you. We are 2-0 on the year and turn around and head back to Fairfield tonight to play Fairfield in the their tournament. We need to find a way to get it done.•••••Schedule for this weekend and Monday JV Girlsv. C. Springs, 4:40TBA Varsity Boysv. C. Springs, 4:40TBA Follow us on Twitter.
