What Are My Rates?

Have you noticed Peninsula Clean Energy on your PG&E bill? That’s how you know you are getting cleaner energy at lower rates. It is not an additional charge. Charges for electricity on your PG&E bill are now simply divided into two parts:

  • Peninsula Clean Energy Electric Generation Charges for generating the amount of electricity you use. Customers receive a 5% savings for ECOplus service compared to PG&E’s electricity generation rates.
  • Current PG&E Electric Delivery Charges for maintaining PG&E’s wires, infrastructure, and delivering electricity to your business. These rates are the same for Peninsula Clean Energy and non-Peninsula Clean Energy customers.

You receive a credit on your bill from PG&E for electricity generation, since Peninsula Clean Energy is now generating your electricity instead of PG&E. This is called the “Generation Credit” located on the Details of PG&E Electric Delivery Charges page of your bill.

Rate Details

In addition to the Peninsula Clean Energy Electric Generation Charges, there are fees that PCE customers pay to PG&E. We include these added fees in our cost comparisons so you can see the actual savings that Peninsula Clean Energy provides when all costs are considered. Peninsula Clean Energy rates are set by Peninsula Clean Energy’s Board of Directors at public meetings.

ECO100 Rates

ECO100 costs $0.01 per kWh more than our ECOplus option. That’s an easy and affordable way to green your operations, receive LEED points, and eliminate carbon emissions associated to your electricity use.
