Monterey Bay Community Power

Monterey Bay Community Power is a regional project among local government agencies that aims to provide electricity to residents and businesses throughout Monterey, San Benito and Santa Cruz Counties through the new Community Choice Energy (CCE) model. CCE enables communities to choose clean-source power at a cost equivalent to PG&E, while retaining PG&E’s role in maintaining power lines and providing customer service. The CCE model helps ensure local economic vitality because money from rates paid by local customers stays local. Surplus revenues that would normally flow to PG&E will stay in the community to help fund renewable energy projects, create jobs and stimulate the economy.

Monterey Bay Community Power will be beneficial to our community

  • Local Control of our Power

    Community Choice Energy (CCE) puts control
    of energy purchasing and pricing into local hands and allows the
    community to determine what type of energy mix best serves their needs.

  • Our Money Stays Local

    Profit from energy sales that would normally flow to PG&E would stay in the community to help fund renewable energy projects, create jobs, and stimulate the local economy.

  • Same Rates - Cleaner Energy

    A CCE can deliver more renewable energy than the utility at the same rate. Marin Clean Energy, the first CCE in California, has more than doubled the amount of clean electricity provided by PG&E to customers while maintaining standard rates.

  • Same Reliable Service from PG&E

    Energy transmission, line maintenance and customer service remains the responsibility of PG&E.  PG&E will continue to handle all customer service and support of the grid.
