What is Peninsula Clean Energy?

Peninsula Clean Energy, or PCE, is San Mateo County’s official electricity provider. Peninsula Clean Energy was launched collaboratively by the County of San Mateo and all twenty of its cities to meet local climate action goals. PCE offers lower rates and a choice of two electricity options, each with a different percentage of sustainable energy. Our ECOplus rates are 5% below PG&E’s, so with PCE, you’re getting cleaner energy at lower rates. Click below to learn about the energy options, or opt-up here.

What’s New! PCE-Icons-19

  • PRESS RELEASE: PCE customers reduce carbon emissions while saving millions annually! After one year of full countywide operations, PCE expects to save electric customers about $17 million, and is expected to avoid 680 million pounds of greenhouse gas emissions, equivalent to avoiding the use of over 34 million gallons of gasoline. Read the full press release here.
  • ALERT: Door-to-Door Scam. PCE has received reports of individuals going door-to-door in Redwood City, claiming to be representatives of PCE and asking for personal information. PCE does not engage in door-to door residential outreach efforts. If you receive unsolicited home visits from someone claiming to represent Peninsula Clean Energy, please do not interact with them, as they are not representatives of PCE. If you are approached, please let us know at 1-866-966-0110 or email us.
  • Still wondering whether PCE is cheaper than PG&E? Check out this table, developed by PG&E, confirming that PCE ECOplus customers pay less for electricity.
