Community Choice Partners, Inc.
Samuel Golding is the President of Community Choice Partners. He is an energy consultant, political economist, educator and grassroots organizer whose industry reform strategies empower municipal governments and civic groups to decarbonize the economy across electricity, heating fuel and transportation sectors.

By side-stepping outdated regulatory restrictions and the legacy technologies that hold back much of the industry, Community Choice agencies are outcompeting “business as usual” incumbents through responsive governance, market-driven innovation in customer services and utility partnerships focused on local infrastructure development.

In order to drive this systemic change forward at an economy-of-scale for all municipalities — from large cities to rural towns — Mr. Golding’s design practice specializes in the formation of Joint Action Power Agencies. Governed by multiple communities that join together to deploy shared operations and technology platforms on a regional or statewide basis, these power agencies also provide the broad-based political coordination across municipalities necessary to reform the state laws and regulations holding back market-based innovation and community-centric planning.

Mr. Golding’s public advocacy, campaign management, expert regulatory testimony, utility partnership and Community Choice Aggregation design advice has helped accelerate the energy transition across multiple states and market structures. Over the last decade, he has been engaged in New Hampshire, New York, Massachusetts, Oregon, California and Colorado.
