Thank you for your continued interest in Community Choice Energy (CCE) for the Central Coast. The CCE feasibility study is now available at

The County of Santa Barbara, with funding from ten other jurisdictions and the Community Environmental Council, commissioned Willdan Financial Services (Willdan) to evaluate the feasibility of creating a new CCE program for the Tri-County Region including San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara, and Ventura Counties. A second consultant, MRW and Associates, conducted a third-party review to evaluate the assumptions and conclusions of the Willdan feasibility study.

The feasibility study and subsequent peer review suggest that a newly created regional CCE program spanning Santa Barbara, San Luis Obispo, and Ventura Counties is likely not a viable venture in terms of the CCE program’s ability to provide competitive rates and remain a solvent organization. The peer review preliminarily suggests that there may be feasible CCE options for some local governments in Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) territory. The study did not evaluate the potential for one or more local governments to join an existing CCE program. 

The County of Santa Barbara Board of Supervisors is expected to consider the results of the study on October 3. The study will be presented to other Central Coast Power jurisdictions after that date. 

Comments or questions related to the feasibility study and peer review can be emailed to [email protected].
