Climate change action begins with choice. By joining MCE, elected officials in Contra Costa, Marin, Napa, and Solano Counties have brought energy choice to their residents and businesses, and today are seeing the impact of offering more renewable energy at competitive – and often lower – rates. Since 2010, MCE customers like Kensington Fire Protection District have eliminated over 340,000 metric tons of carbon emissions by choosing MCE’s 60% and 100% renewable energy options. MCE participation is also helping communities to advance their Climate Action Plans’ greenhouse gas emission reduction goals. Plus, a portion of MCE’s renewable energy is sourced from new, local renewable projects that we have built in our service area.
MCE takes a holistic approach to reducing greenhouse gas emissions. In addition to providing more renewable energy options, our customers can choose from a variety of programs that help to reduce their energy consumption and carbon emissions from their daily activities.
