How it works
Peninsula Clean Energy provides electricity from clean energy sources at lower rates than PG&E.
PG&E owns the power lines and delivers the power we generate. They send a consolidated bill.
As a customer of Peninsula Clean Energy, you are helping the environment and saving money.
Charges for electricity on your PG&E bill include
Peninsula Clean Energy electric generation
These charges are for generating the electricity you use. Customers save money with our standard ECOplus service when compared to PG&E’s rates.
PG&E electric delivery
These charges for maintaining PG&E’s wires, infrastructure, and delivering electricity to your home are the same for Peninsula Clean Energy and non-Peninsula Clean Energy customers.

Most of our customers are automatically enrolled in ECOplus service, which costs less than PG&E and is 100% carbon-free.
If you want to do more for the environment, upgrade to ECO100 service. It provides energy that is 100% carbon-free and 100% renewable and costs only $0.01 per kWh more than our standard ECOplus service. In Portola Valley, customers are automatically enrolled in ECO100, based on their Town Council’s vote to go carbon-free and 100% renewable. This makes Portola Valley one of the first towns in California to be entirely 100% renewable!
Customers enrolled in Peninsula Clean Energy still receive their full CARE/FERA and Medical Baseline discounts. There’s no need to reapply, and there is no change in the discount rates.
