MCE in San Pablo
The default rate plan under MCE is Light Green (~60% renewable energy). As of March 1, 2018, Light Green is 2-5% cheaper, on average, than PG&E's basic 33% renewable energy service. For just a few dollars more per month, you can opt up to Deep Green 100% clean electricity and make a big impact on the planet.
For the average household, Deep Green 100% renewable energy is just $4 more per month than your standard service. You can find out how much Deep Green 100% renewable will cost you by looking at your bill. Find your “Total Usage” (kWh), usually on the 3rd page of your bill at the top right corner. Multiply that number by $0.01 to calculate the additional amount you would have paid for Deep Green that month.
As MCE customers, San Pablo's residents and businesses are eligible to participate in MCE’s energy efficiency and rebate programs, in addition to the rebates and incentives currently available through PG&E. Multifamily property owners and customers with rooftop solar or electric vehicles have additional opportunities to save money.

History of San Pablo and MCE Clean Energy
As part of the City of San Pablo’s efforts to reduce climate-changing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, the City Council voted to join MCE, formerly Marin Clean Energy, in 2014. MCE is a not-for-profit, Community Choice Aggregation (CCA) electricity provider that gives customers affordable “green” electricity choices in partnership with PG&E.
In March of 2015, all San Pablo residents that did not opt-out were enrolled in MCE’s standard Light Green plan, which is sourced from at least 50% renewable sources. The MCE program has been projected to significantly reduce the GHG emissions associated with electricity usage in San Pablo.
