MCE Submits $188 Million Energy Efficiency Business Plan
Includes Funding for New Equity Offerings in Environmental Justice Communities
SAN RAFAEL and CONCORD, Calif. — On March 4, 2022, MCE filed a business plan with the California Public Utilities Commission to invest $188 million from 2024 to 2031 in energy efficiency and demand management programs to benefit customers, reduce greenhouse gas emissions and support grid resiliency. The eight-year plan comprehensively addresses the needs of MCE’s agricultural, commercial, industrial, public agency, and residential customers. This includes extending MCE’s groundbreaking Peak FLEXmarket Program and creating new equity offerings for residents in environmental justice communities in MCE’s service area.
“MCE’s leading–edge approach to customer programs has already created significant benefits for our customers,” said Tom Butt, MCE Board Chair and Mayor of Richmond. “By expanding our energy efficiency program portfolio, we have the opportunity to further support those in our communities who need it the most. The expanded equity offerings build on programs like our workforce development initiatives, which have reinvested over $3 million in our communities.”
