Making sustainable energy choices

Peninsula Clean Energy’s experienced Power Resources team is dedicated to buying low-cost, price-stable, clean, and green sources of energy. We launched our service in 2016 based on a portfolio of power supplied by Direct Energy, and have added portfolio purchases from a variety of suppliers. We also work directly with developers to sign Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) for renewable energy from facilities in California.

Our goal is to procure a diverse power portfolio that is:

  • 100% greenhouse gas-free by 2021
  • Sourced by 100% CA RPS eligible renewable energy by 2025
  • Includes a minimum of 20 MWs of new local power by 2025

Energy procurement strategy

The Peninsula Clean Energy procurement strategy provides guidance for serving the electric needs of the residents and businesses in San Mateo County and for meeting policy objectives and regulatory requirements over the 10-year planning period from 2018-2027.

Our existing and planned supply commitments will enable us to fulfill regulatory mandates and voluntary procurement targets related to renewable, greenhouse gas-free (GHG-free) and conventional (non-renewable) energy.
