Good news! You are helping the environment and saving a little money at the same time, and you didn't have to do a thing. It's all because we have Peninsula Clean Energy!
PRC is partnering with PCE to educate the families we serve and our community about the cost savings of clean energy, while also helping low-income families and seniors learn if they are eligible for additional energy discounts through our case management services.
Robby Bancroft, Mariam Dennis, Mary Bier, and Nicole Yarbrough at Eco Fest promoting PRC & PCE!
Peninsula Clean Energy is a program launched collaboratively by the County of San Mateo and its cities, including Pacifica. It's providing almost everyone in the county with electricity from cleaner sources, and at 5% lower prices compared to PG&E.
That's about $2/month savings for the average household, and across Pacifica it adds up to about $500,000 a year! We're all still PG&E customers, too; PG&E continues to maintain the wires, provide natural gas, and handle billing. Most Pacificans have already had this benefit for about a year now, though you may not realize it.
If you're not sure you're actually saving money, then check out Peninsula Clean Energy's video on calculating the savings on your own PG&E bill.
