Community Choice Electricity (CCE): CCE is about to be implemented for (most) Boston electricity consumers starting in February 2021, but not many people are familiar with it. The Green Committee seeks to inform NABB members and other neighbors about this change, to answer questions with accurate information, to address any worries, and to build support for this city-wide initiative which will significantly advance Boston’s goal of becoming carbon-free by 2050.
