We encourage you to consider attending a town hall meeting that will provide a presentation, discussion and Q&A about Richmond's new electricity options. The meeting will be hosted by the City of Richmond and the public power agency MCE. The meeting will take place on Monday, April 22, 2013 from 6:30 - 8 PM at the Lavonnya DeJean Middle School at 3400 MacDonald Avenue. Please see the attached flyer for meeting details.
MCE is a public agency and not-for-profit electricity provider that gives customers the choice of having 50% to 100% of their electricity supplied from clean, renewable sources such as solar, wind, bioenergy, and hydroelectric at competitive rates.
Community Choice Aggregation programs such as MCE allow cities and counties to offer their citizens and businesses another option for where to purchase electricity besides the current utility (PG&E). MCE's goal is to provide a greater support for renewable energy at competitive rates to Richmond residents and businesses. By choosing MCE, Richmond's electric customers help support the development of new in-state and local renewable energy generation.
In July, all electric customers in Richmond will be enrolled in MCE's Light Green 50% renewable energy option unless they choose to opt out. Richmond customers have 3 electricity options:
1) MCE Light Green 50% renewable energy (default service and competitive rates with PG&E)
2) MCE Deep Green 100% renewable energy (a penny more per kilowatt hour)
3) PG&E electric supply that is 20% renewable energy
Electric customers will receive 5 enrollment notices over the next 5 months in the mail. Electric customers who would like more information, should call 1 (888) 632-3674 or visit www.mceCleanEnergy.com.
Thank you for your consideration,
City of Richmond
