A True Choice About How Your Electricity is Generated
You’ll soon have a true choice about how your electricity is generated and what you pay for it: Cleaner energy at rates 1% below PG&E.
San José residents and business will be enrolled in SJCE’s GreenSource service in February 2019*. Or, you can upgrade to TotalGreen and receive 100% renewable energy.
*Some small businesses as well as residential customers with rooftop solar will not be enrolled in SJCE GreenSource in February. However, you can enroll early in our TotalGreen service.
Customers in the City of San José with existing PG&E accounts will be automatically enrolled in GreenSource during February 2019*. Your electricity will be generated from renewable sources such as wind and solar, and from carbon-free sources such as hydropower. GreenSource rates are cheaper than PG&E generation rates.
*Some small businesses as well as residential customers with rooftop solar will not be enrolled in SJCE in February. However, you can enroll early in our TotalGreen service.
**Unspecified sources aren't traceable to a specific generation facility, such as electricity traded through open-market transactions. They may include renewables and hydroelectric.
You can now preselect our upgrade, TotalGreen.
You’ll be a community leader in our commitment to a clean energy future because your electricity will be generated entirely from renewable, carbon-free sources. Choosing TotalGreen also means SJCE can help expand clean energy generation in California and increase competition to keep rates low.
TotalGreen additional costs are about the same as one cup of coffee a month!
Commercial customers: SJCE has an easy and attractive program for solar and other distributed electricity generation systems (wind, biogas and fuel cells) for commercial customers.
Residential Customers: We expect to enroll residential customers in 2020, when we can be certain you will receive a fair value. If you currently have solar, you won’t automatically be enrolled in SJCE's standard GreenSource service. But you can enroll early by pre-selecting TotalGreen, our 100% renewable option.
