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 were enrolled in SJCE’s GreenSource service in February 2019*. You can also upgrade to TotalGreen and receive 100% renewable energy.
*Some small businesses as well as residential customers with rooftop solar will be enrolled in SJCE GreenSource at a later date. However, you can enroll early in our TotalGreen service.
Customers in the City of San José with existing PG&E accounts were automatically enrolled in GreenSource in February 2019*. Your electricity is 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 be enrolled in SJCE at a later date. 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 upgrade to TotalGreen at any time to receive 100% renewable energy.
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 a cup of coffee or two 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 upgrading to TotalGreen, our 100% renewable option.
OPT OUT – PG&E POWER MIX*
If you choose, you can opt out of San José Clean Energy and remain entirely with PG&E service. However, you won't benefit from cleaner and cheaper electricity nor participate in a locally controlled energy program that benefits our community.
There’s no charge to switch to remain with PG&E before your SJCE service starts** or within 180 days after service starts. And if you later decide that SJCE is a good choice for you, we’ll be happy to welcome you back!
If you'd like to opt out, we recommend you first read the Terms and Conditions.
*From PG&E’s 2017 Power Content Label.
**Some small businesses as well as residential customers with rooftop solar will not be enrolled in SJCE GreenSource in February. If you do not receive an enrollment notice, you will continue to receive service from PG&E. Please call us at 833-432-2454 if you have any questions.
