Rates Graphic

Competitive Rates. Cleaner Power.

The electric charges on your bill can be simplified into two categories:

  • Electric Delivery Rates – PG&E delivery rates are the same for MCE and non-MCE customers.
  • Electric Generation Rates – Generation rates vary depending on the service that you choose: PG&E, MCE Light Green, or MCE Deep Green.

If you choose MCE service, MCE will replace PG&E’s charges for generation. PG&E will also add additional fees to your bill. We always include these added fees in cost comparisons.

How MCE Works

Residential Rates

Stable Rates. Priceless Environmental Benefits.

Clean energy makes a difference and so do stable rates. You get both when you choose MCE’s renewable energy sources.

We partner with PG&E to give you transparent cost comparisons. The electric charges on your bill can be simplified into two categories: Electric Delivery and Electric Generation. When you use MCE, PG&E Electric Delivery charges stay the same. MCE replaces the Electric Generation charge, which accounts for the source of power and how much electricity you’re using.
