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 electricity generation charges

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 electricity delivery charges

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.

Additional PG&E charges

In addition to the electric generation and delivery charges, there are other fees that Peninsula Clean Energy customers pay to PG&E. These include the Power Charge Indifference Adjustment(PCIA) and Franchise Fee. We include these in our cost comparisons so you can see the actual savings that Peninsula Clean Energy provides when all costs are considered.

Energy choices: ECOplus and ECO100

Most of our customers are automatically enrolled in our ECOplus service, which costs less than PG&E and is 100% carbon-free.

If you want to do more for the environment, upgrade to our 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 our ECO100 product, 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!

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.
