Peninsula Clean Energy is a community choice energy (CCE) program, also known sometimes as Community Choice Aggregation. CCE programs allow local governments to pool the electricity demands of their communities, purchasing power with higher renewable content, and reinvesting in local infrastructure. To learn more Peninsula Clean Energy, visit PCE's program website, or call (866) 966-0110. Or download the latest Annual Belmont Community Benefits Report.
Starting this February, 220,000 residences and businesses throughout San Mateo County will receive four notices in the mail to inform them that they are about to enjoy cleaner electricity and save money through Peninsula Clean Energy (PCE). In April all county residents and businesses will be enrolled in ECOplus, and will enjoy 5% savings on the electrical generation portion of their bill and greener electricity. They will also have the choice to opt up to ECO100 to receive 100% renewable energy.
Peninsula Clean Energy is San Mateo County’s new default electricity provider, reducing greenhouse gas emissions and offering customer choice at competitive rates. PCE is a joint powers authority, which means residents have local control through their representative on the PCE board.
Peninsula Clean Energy purchases greener electricity for its customers, and PG&E continues to handle electricity delivery, maintenance of wires, customer billing, and natural gas services. Call PG&E’s customer service line if you experience an outage. PCE customers receive a consolidated bill from PG&E, which will reflect 5% savings if they are enrolled in ECOplus.
Customers can learn more and make their choices on PCE’s website www.peninsulacleanenergy.com or by calling PCE’s customer service phone number at 1-866-966-0110.
