On April 1, Danville became one of the latest municipalities to use MCE as the primary electricity provider. The Town joins Alamo, Blackhawk, San Ramon, Walnut Creek, Lafayette and a number of other Bay Area communities receiving electricity from MCE. joining MCE expands the community's access to more competitive electricity rates, accelerates the use of renewable energy, and increases consumer choice.
While MCE sources electricity (at a minimum of 50% from renewable resources compared to PG&E’s 33% renewable), PG&E will continue to deliver power, maintain transmission lines and poles, and handle billing for Danville residents and businesses. Utility costs will likely remain the same or be slightly lower than PG&E. Look for your first bill with MCE charges in May.
Want to be even more energy conscious? All MCE customers are invited to “opt up” to MCE’s Deep Green service option, which is 100% renewable, Green-e certified power from pollution-free solar and wind sources in California. Opting up to Deep Green is only one penny per kilowatt-hour ($0.01 / kWh) more than MCE’s standard Light Green 50% option. (It’s about $4 more for the average home’s monthly usage). To opt up, visit www.mcecleanenergy.org/dg-enroll.
