Peninsula Clean Energy Update
As of 2018 Peninsula Clean Energy’s (PCE’s) ECO100 option is now certified by Green-e Energy, the leading renewable energy certification and verification program in North America administered by the nonprofit Center for Resource Solutions (CRS). Fourteen cities, the County of San Mateo, and the social media company Facebook have chosen to power their operations with PCE’s 100% renewable electricity product, which is available to all San Mateo County residents and businesses.
Peninsula Clean Energy is the official electricity provider for residential and business customers in all twenty cities and the unincorporated areas of San Mateo County. PCE was launched in 2016 by the County and its twenty cities to meet local environmental goals by offering cleaner energy at lower rates. PCE customers have a choice of two options: ECOplus and ECO100. ECOplus contains at least 50% renewable electricity, and is priced at 5% less than PG&E’s generation rates. PCE’s Green-e Energy certified ECO100 option is 100% renewable and 100% greenhouse gas free with energy from wind and solar.
Cities, towns, agencies, and businesses in San Mateo County that have chosen ECO100 to meet environmental goals include Atherton, Belmont, Brisbane, Burlingame, Colma, Foster City, Hillsborough, Menlo Park, Millbrae, Portola Valley, Redwood City, San Carlos, San Mateo, Woodside, SamTrans, Caltrain, the San Mateo County Harbor District, and the County of San Mateo as well as Facebook’s Menlo Park corporate headquarters. In addition, the Town Council of Portola Valley voted to enroll all its residences and business automatically in ECO100. See PCE’s ECO100 Business Directory for additional participating businesses.
