Historically, PG&E has been the default power provider to customers in San Mateo County and customers were automatically enrolled in PG&E because there was no alternative service to choose from. Now there is a choice.
Because of the benefits offered by Community Choice programs such as Peninsula Clean Energy (PCE), including lower cost and cleaner electricity, our state legislators passed California’s Community Choice Aggregation law in 2002, making Community Choice programs the default service, resulting in competition and better options for customers. As we roll out our service to residents and businesses in San Mateo county, you are automatically enrolled in Peninsula Clean Energy.
Now you have 3 choices:
- Peninsula Clean Energy’s default offering, ECOplus, which is 50% renewable energy, 85% greenhouse gas free energy, and less expensive than PG&E.
- PG&E’s standard offering, which is 33% renewable energy, 79% greenhouse gas free energy, and more expensive than ECOplus
- Peninsula Clean Energy’s 100% renewable energy product, ECO100, which is slightly more expensive than PG&E.
We hope you will choose to stay with Peninsula Clean Energy. However, if your choice is to return to PG&E, you can opt out of PCE and receive electric generation from PG&E. To opt out, please have a copy of your PG&E bill handy. You may opt out online or by calling our local Call Center at 866-966-0110.
