It’s the Easiest Step to Help Fight Climate Change
Half of the Deep Green premium is invested in MCE’s Local Renewable Energy & Program Development Fund, helping to install electric vehicle charging ports and build renewable projects like MCE Solar One across our service area.
MCE Solar One
Conceived by the Richmond community to integrate renewable energy and solar facilities in the Chevron Modernization Project, MCE Solar One is expected to eliminate 3,234 metric tons of carbon dioxide in one year, equivalent to taking more than 680 fossil fueled cars off the road annually.*
