  Richmond Leads in Deep Green
June 28, 2017

Deep Green is the MCE choice for 100% renewable electricity.

Based on 2016 electricity usage for all MCE member communities, MCE has determined that customers in the City of Richmond have the most Deep Green electricity usage in the entire MCE service area. Richmond is #1 in Deep Green kWhs. Additionally, Richmond has about 35% of all Deep Green electricity usage within MCE's 24 member communities. 

Eight MCE member municipalities have already voted to opt up municipal accounts (Corte Madera, Larkspur, Novato, San Rafael, Ross, Marin County, Napa County and El Cerrito). In passing the 2107-18 budget, the Richmond City Council joined those eight other cities in upgrading Richmond’s municipal account to Deep Green.

If you are a Richmond resident or business, you have the power to create change. Choosing to enroll in MCE’s Deep Green 100% renewable energy program is the first step. With Deep Green, ALL of the power you buy for your home or business comes from 100% non-polluting, Green-e Energy certified California wind and solar power. And because we believe that success is a two-way street, MCE supports and promotes our Deep Green commercial customers in a variety of ways.
Did you know that half of the revenue generated from Deep Green goes towards building local solar projects in our service area? You can support our local clean tech future with Deep Green!
