You have the power to change the amount of renewable energy that is put on the grid. With Deep Green, all of the power you buy for your home or business comes from 100% non-polluting, Green-e Energy certified wind and solar power and you’ll support the development of new, local renewable energy projects.
Affordable. It costs only a penny more per kilowatt-hour than our Light Green service. For most residential customers, the additional cost of Deep Green is less than $5 per month. Half of the revenue from this premium funds the development of local renewable energy projects.
Contributes to new, local renewables. Thanks to Deep Green customers, we’re building Solar One, the Bay Area’s largest publicly owned solar project. This 10.5 megawatt solar project in Richmond, CA is expected to be online by 2017.
MCE’s voluntary Deep Green 100% Renewable Energy product is Green-e Energy certified, and meets the environmental and consumer-protection standards set forth by the nonprofit Center for Resource Solutions.
Where the Power Comes From
Deep Green power comes from non-polluting, renewable sources and is Green-e Energy certified. Because it’s independently purchased and entirely verified by Green-e, you can be confident that Deep Green power comes only from renewable sources.
Part of our Deep Green energy mix includes renewable energy certificates, which support the development of new renewable energy facilities in the western U.S., and reduce greenhouse gas emissions through the purchasing power of our residential and commercial customers. Renewable energy certificates represent the environmental attributes of renewable electricity generation. We update our Power Content Label periodically to reflect the most current locations of our renewable energy generators.
And because we believe that success is a two-way street, MCE supports and promotes our Deep Green commercial customers in a variety of ways through our Deep Green Champions program. Hear why 100% renewable energy service was right for these local business owners.
