MCE Launches $6 Million Residential Efficiency Market Program
New Options for Contra Costa, Marin, Napa, and Solano Residents to Save Money and Support Grid Reliability
SAN RAFAEL and CONCORD, Calif. — In response to California’s efforts to increase grid reliability and lower energy costs, MCE has launched its latest energy efficiency program, Residential Efficiency Market. This $6 million program increases decarbonization and grid reliability by offering incentives to participants for reducing energy consumption with a focus on summer 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. peak hours. This is an expansion of MCE’s Marketplace programs, which include the Commercial Efficiency Market and the Peak FLEXmarket.
“As California moves toward 100% renewable electricity, we need to find many solutions for reducing energy consumption during times of high demand, especially in the summer when grid-related outages are more common,” said Dawn Weisz, MCE CEO. “MCE’s Marketplace programs help us reduce the need for polluting fossil-fuels and increase grid reliability as we prioritize the transition to clean energy.”
