PCE will not charge a fee to sign up. During the first year of service, you can opt out at no charge. After that, there will be a small one-time service fee to opt out ($5 for Residential customers; $25 for Commercial customers). Customers who opt out after receiving service from Peninsula Clean Energy for more than 60 days must select one of PG&E’s two offers:
- You can notify PCE at least six months before the date that you want to return to PG&E bundled service. When you return to bundled service six months later, you will pay the then-existing bundled electric generation rate, which will be identical to similarly situated PG&E customers in your customer class.
- If you do not provide PG&E with a full six-months’ notice, you can return to PG&E bundled service at any time, but you will pay the then-existing Transitional Bundled Commodity Cost (TBCC) – which may be higher or lower than the then-existing bundled electric generation rate – until six months after PG&E receives notice from PCE. Thereafter, you will pay the bundled electric generation rate (identical to similarly situated PG&E customers in your customer class).
With either option, you’ll be required to make a one-year commitment to PG&E bundled service.
