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. Compare MCE and PG&E’s power sources.

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.
