For decades, Southern California Edison has been the default power provider in our region, with little or no alternative for most customers. In an effort to even the playing field and enable CCAs to launch and provide consumers with other choices, part of California’s CCA law requires Energy for Palmdale’s Independent Choice to operate as an opt-out program and become the default provider of electric generation for customers within our service area. Customer choice is very important to us, so we provide four written notices to our customers so that you can choose where your electricity comes from and how your dollars are spent.
