Central Coast Community Energy Webinars 
CCCE recently implemented monthly billing for all residential and commercial customers receiving NEM service. To prepare for this transition, CCCE trued up all NEM customers in December 2021, beginning an annual cycle for Net Surplus Compensation (NSC) calculations, which will occur in December of each year. Credits are applied monthly. These changes will benefit CCCE NEM customers through greater visibility into energy use and credit accumulation.
