Much Needed Bill Savings for Bay Area Customers

SAN RAFAEL and CONCORD, Calif. — MCE is offering Bay Area customers lower energy costs and is extending its MCE Cares Credit Program which, in less than one year, has already saved $3.1 million for 42,000 low-income residents and small businesses. The discount provides qualifying customers with $10/month residential credits and 20%/month (up to $22) small business credits.

All MCE customers are also paying less compared to PG&E. With MCE’s March 1, 2022 rate change, MCE residential customers are saving an average of $13 a month on their electricity bills with Light Green 60% renewable compared to PG&E’s 31% renewable. Even MCE’s premium Deep Green 100% renewable is less expensive than PG&E’s 31% renewable service, saving customers an average of $7 a month. Customers can choose MCE Deep Green 100% renewable energy to save on their electric bill and reduce greenhouse gas emissions to confront the climate crisis.

We know our customers are still navigating the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, and rising energy costs are a part of that,” said Devin Murphy, MCE Board Director and City of Pinole Mayor Pro Tem. “Offering lower-cost energy options and extending the MCE Cares Credit Program is critical to helping our communities during these unprecedented times.”
