MCE’s mission is “to address climate change by reducing energy related greenhouse gas emissions through renewable energy supply and energy efficiency at stable and competitive rates for customers while providing local economic and workforce benefits.”
Buildings account for a large share of greenhouse gas emissions, but transportation is the largest emitting sector in our service area.
MCE currently serves over 450,000 customers and their buildings with local, renewable electricity. We want to do the same for EV drivers in our service area, which are anticipated to grow to 33,000 EV drivers within four years. One way we can serve our customers, improve air quality, and reduce emissions is anticipating the need for greater access to charging at workplaces and multifamily properties, especially those in underserved communities.
EVs are great but they are only as clean as the electricity provided to them. Aside from rebates, MCE is helping site hosts power those charging stations with renewable service from 100% California wind and solar energy.
