If you are a resident or business in the unincorporated area of Napa County, be sure to watch your mailbox for more information about MCE Clean Energy, which offers utility customers the choice of 50% to 100% renewable energy as a source of power.
Your electric account will be automatically enrolled in MCE Napa County
’s low-cost, clean power program inFebruary 2015 unless you choose to opt out of the program.
The Napa County Board of Supervisors voted to join MCE, a nonprofit, community-based organization partnering with PG&E to provide your electric service from solar, wind, bioenergy, geothermal, and hydroelectricity.
If you choose to stay with MCE Napa County, not much will change. PG&E will still handle electric delivery, maintain power lines, read your meter, and send you your monthly bill. The only change will be that your bill will show “MCE” rather than PG&E on the line item as the provider of electric generation; you will still receive just one bill.
There are three options for utility customers in unincorporated Napa County:
- MCE Napa County Light Green, which is 50% renewable energy. Do nothing and your account will automatically reflect the change in February 2015.
- MCE Napa County’s Deep Green, which is 100% renewable energy. This equates to about a penny more per kilowatt-hour, or about $4 per month for the average home. Enrolling in this 100% renewable energy option can be done online or over the phone.
- Stay with PG&E, which currently offers 22% renewable energy. To continue with PG&E as your electric generation provider, you may opt out of MCE Napa County online or by phone.
It’s your choice. More information is a simple phone call or click away. Call 1-888-632-3674 or visit www.MCECleanEnergy.org to opt out or sign up for Deep Green. Please have your PG&E bill on hand to process the request.
