What are the Benefits of BPROUD?

Authorized in California under AB 117, Community Choice Aggregation (CCA) programs grant municipalities, like Baldwin Park, the power to purchase electricity directly from energy suppliers on behalf of residents and local businesses. While Baldwin Park will now procure energy for its community, SoCal Edison (SCE), the local investor-owned utility, will continue to manage transmission, distribution and billing for all customers.

Through their CCA programs, Baldwin Park will now procure energy directly from suppliers, control rates and decide where profits will be allocated. With CCA revenue, Baldwin Park will first create a financially stable program with a reserve that ensures rate stability. After a reserve is in place, Baldwin Park will use profits to develop community programs that benefit residents and local businesses such as energy efficiency programs.
