Residential Rates

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 divided into two parts:

Peninsula Clean Energy
Electric Generation Charges

These charges are for generating the amount of electricity you use. Customers receive a 5% savings for our standard ECOplus  service when compared to PG&E’s  rates.

Current PG&E
Electric Delivery Charges

These charges are 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.

Discount Rates

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. Learn more about discounts on our Lower Your Bill Page.

Typical Monthly Electric Charges

The table above is based on a typical usage of 427 kWh at PG&E rates as of May 1, 2020 and Peninsula Clean Energy rates effective as of May 15, 2020 under the E-1 rate schedule. PG&E renewable energy and greenhouse gas-free percentages are as of 2019. Actual usage and totals will vary depending on usage, rate schedule, and other factors. The estimate provided is an average of seasonal rates.

In addition to the electric generation charges, there are fees that Peninsula Clean Energy customers pay to PG&E (PCIA and Franchise Fee). 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.
