This year Silicon Valley Clean Energy (SVCE) became the official electricity supplier for residents and businesses of of our community, and serving the communities of Campbell, Cupertino, Gilroy, Los Altos, Los Altos Hills, Los Gatos, Monte Sereno, Morgan Hill, Mountain View, Saratoga, Sunnyvale and unincorporated Santa Clara County.
SVCE delivers carbon free energy at 1% less than PG&E prices. PG&E continues to distribute electricity through their existing infrastructure, perform maintenance, billing and customer service, so there will be no difference in your utility service or reliability. SVCE was formed by the communities it serves and is governed by a board of directors comprised of one elected representative from each of its participating communities.
Historically, when you received your energy statement from PG&E, it included bundled charges, which combined the cost of electric generation and delivery. Now, as you look at your Energy Statement, you will see electric delivery and generation charges separately. The Silicon Valley Clean Energy electric generation charge is NOT a duplicated charge as it replaces what PG&E would have charged you for electric generation.
Silicon Valley Clean Energy has a lot of resources available to assist you with understanding your bill:
