Light Green 50% Renewable

MCE’s Light Green 50% renewable energy service procures energy for your home or business from renewable sources like solar, wind, bioenergy, geothermal, and small hydro.

If you live in Marin or Napa County, or the City of Benicia, El Cerrito, Lafayette, Richmond, San Pablo, or Walnut Creek, your electric service is automatically enrolled in Light Green 50% renewable energy when you create an account with PG&E. No need to actively sign up to participate in 50% renewable energy; by default you can take advantage of cleaner energy, at competitive and stable rates.

You can also choose 100% renewable energy, 100% locally-produced solar energy, or 30% renewable energy for your electric generation service.
