Benefits of MCE
You will have a voice in your electricity rates and programs. MCE is controlled by a Board of locally elected officials, not private shareholders.
Competitive & Stable Rates
Having a choice of energy provider means competitive rates and value for you. The cost of MCE Light Green service is comparable to PG&E’s standard service and contains more renewable energy.
MCE does not use taxpayer dollars. We reinvest in the communities by providing access to residential, agricultural, and commercial programs that help you save money.
Watch a Virtual Community Meeting Recording
MCE’s community meetings about the unincorporated Solano County enrollment were held remotely. Due to public health concerns related to COVID-19, and recommended social distancing guidelines, MCE hosted the community meetings virtually. We welcome you to watch the recorded events below to learn more about MCE and have your questions answered.

Requests to opt out after 90 days of start of service with MCE will be subject to a one-time administrative fee of $5 per residential account, or $25 per commercial account.
