Energy Procurement

San José Clean Energy buys its power from a number of suppliers. Sources of renewable and carbon-free power include California wind, solar and geothermal; Colorado wind; and hydroelectric power from the Pacific Northwest. Like all electricity providers in California, we will report the percentage of each eligible renewable technology to the California Energy Commission on a yearly basis in the form of a power content label. This will happen for the first time later this summer, and the Power Content Label will be posted on both the CEC website and here.
