Marin Clean EnergyBronze Sponsor
MCE, a local, not-for-profit, community based organization, partners with PG&E to provide electric service to the residents and businesses of Marin County, Unincorporated Napa County and the Cities of Benicia, El Cerrito, Richmond and San Pablo. PG&E continues to handle electric delivery, maintain power lines, read meters and send the monthly bill as they always have. MCE creates choice, where there was none before, by offering three new options for energy service: Light Green 50% renewable energy, Deep Green 100% renewable energy and Local Sol 100% local solar energy. Those who choose Light Green 50% renewable energy service save money on their monthly PG&E bill. In 2014, MCE customers saved approximately $5.9 million through MCE. MCE also supports new local renewable development projects and new local programs, while also addressing climate change by reducing energy related greenhouse gas emissions and securing energy supply, price stability, energy efficiency and local economic and workforce benefits.
Marin Clean Energy (MCE) was California’s first Community Choice Aggregation program and started service in 2010.
