What is Community Choice Energy?

Peninsula Clean Energy (PCE) is a community choice energy (CCE) program. A CCE is a locally controlled community organization that enables local residents and businesses to have a choice regarding where their energy comes from. After a comprehensive feasibility study was completed and studied, elected officials from each member jurisdiction unanimously agreed to form PCE for the benefit of San Mateo County. As a CCE, PCE offers many environmental and economic benefits to the residents and businesses of San Mateo County:

PCE provides the local community with more control over their electricity supply.
