MCE Clean Energy Program

mce 2
MCE is a public agency and not-for-profit electricity provider that gives customers the choice of having 50% to 100% of their electricity supplied from clean, renewable sources such as solar, wind, bioenergy, and hydroelectric at competitive rates. 

Community Choice Aggregation programs such as MCE allow cities and counties to offer their citizens and businesses another option to purchase electricity besides the current utility (PG&E). MCE's goal is to provide a greater support for renewable energy at competitive rates to Richmond residents and businesses. By choosing MCE, Richmond's electric customers help support the development of new in-state and local renewable energy generation and the assist the City in meeting its Greenhouse Gas (GHG) reduction goals.

2) MCE ‘Deep Green’ 100% renewable energy (a penny more per kilowatt hour)

3) PG&E electric supply that is 20% renewable energy
