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, the 10MW solar system 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.**

* Green-e Energy certifies the Deep Green product and does not certify the administration of the fund.
