39%, 60%, or 100% Renewable. The Choice is Yours!
How It Works
With MCE, you’re investing in cleaner energy at a cost that is competitive with – and often even cheaper than – PG&E’s costs. PG&E will continue to deliver your electricity through their power lines and provide your gas service.
Benefits of Choosing MCE
More Renewables and a Cleaner Planet. More of the electricity you pay for will come from non-polluting and constantly replenishing sources. Think sun, wind, bioenergy, hydroelectricity, and geothermal heat. Since MCE flipped the switch in 2010, we’ve eliminated over 300,000 metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions by using pollution-free energy.
Stable and Competitive Rates. In 2014 and 2015, MCE saved our customers over $16 million through lower energy rates. We also proudly reduced our rates two years in a row in 2016 and 2017.
New Clean Energy Projects. New clean energy projects have been built — and will continue to be built — right here in California and in our communities. MCE and its partners have committed over $1.5 billion to build new wind, solar, and biogas projects in our state.
Local Jobs. Our new renewable energy projects have supported 5,000 California jobs to date resulting in 1.25 million labor hours (60% are union labor hours).
Community Investment. MCE does not use taxpayer dollars. We reinvest in the communities we serve by providing low and stable rates, fostering renewable development projects, and expanding energy efficiency programs.
Local Control. An elected official representing your city or county is on MCE’s Board of Directors, incorporating your community’s values into MCE’s decision making. MCE member communities – not private shareholders – control their own energy choices.
