YIKES! Earth Month is almost over!
Can you do one more thing this month to fight climate change?
It will take 10 minutes of your time and likely save you money!
Here's what to do: Switch over to a Community Choice energy program!
What are Community Choice programs?
Community choice programs are administered by local governments to provide a competitive alternative to investor-owned utilities like PG&E. They provide cleaner power and deliver benefits locally rather than to PG&E shareholders.
Residents of Marin are served by a community choice program called MCE. MCE, a not-for-profit public agency, offers renewable power at stable, competitive rates in four Bay Area counties. Started in 2010, it has eliminated 700,000 metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions and saved customers $68 million to date.
PG&E handles service delivery and billing for MCE customers. All you have to do is sign up!
As an MCE customer, you have choices among programs. For the biggest environmental impact, sign up for Deep Green or Local Sol!!
Renewable sources: bioenergy, geothermal, wind, solar, eligible hydroelectric
Nonrenewable sources: Coal, large hydroelectric, natural gas, nuclear
READY TO GO GREEN? If you live in Marin, Contra Costa, Solano, or Napa County call MCE at 1 (888) 632-3674
or email email@example.com. Have your PG&E account number handy.
