“Redwood City, CA – Thousands of San Mateo County residents and business will soon receive the first of several notices informing them about the coming change in their electric energy supply from PG&E to the locally based and governed Peninsula Clean Energy (PCE).
The Peninsula Clean Energy Authority, formed in March 2016, is a joint powers authority made up of the County of San Mateo and the 20 cities in the County. This joint powers authority was formed to provide the residents and businesses in San Mateo County with a cleaner and greener choice in where their energy is sourced.
Beyond the source of electricity, customers will not experience any noticeable changes. Every customer will continue to receive a PG&E bill that will substitute Peninsula Clean Energy as the provider of the energy generation. All payments will continue to be sent to PG&E. PG&E will continue to respond to all service needs such as power outages or other typical issues. This will be a seamless transition with no disruption for customers. The only significant change is that Peninsula Clean Energy will provide cleaner electricity at lower rates for all residents and businesses in San Mateo County.”
