Silicon Valley Clean Energy has exceeded the state mandate to procure 50% renewable energy by 2030, more than a decade ahead of schedule. In 2017, the Community Choice Energy agency sourced clean power with an emissions rate of less than one pound of carbon dioxide per megawatt hour, a 99% decrease in emissions associated with electricity generation. Additionally, SVCE customers save money. Electric generation rates for SVCE are now six percent less than PG&E’s equivalent rates. An average residential customer is saving approximately $40 per year with SVCE.
This information is being sent to electricity customers in a majority of Santa Clara County communities in the annual Joint Rate Mailer – a joint communication with SVCE and PG&E which provides side-by-side cost and power content comparisons for customers to review their electricity choices. The mailers are also available to view online at svcleanenergy.org/compare.
