FAQs: Marin Clean Energy’s DEEP GREEN Program
1. How do MCE and PG&E work together?
MCE buys and builds out clean energy sources. That electricity is fed into the statewide grid onto PG&E’s transmission lines where it is ultimately fed into your home or business. MCE procures the energy and PG&E delivers it.
2. What’s the difference between PG&E’s power and MCE Light Green and MCE Deep Green power?
3. What are the sources of energy for each of those services?
4. What are the MCE Deep Green participation rates in Marin County?
Way to go Fairfax –we are leading the county in participation! But countywide, only 4.8% of MCE accounts are Deep Green. That’s why there is a countywide challenge to double participation in 2020 — the 50th anniversary year of earth day! Help us opt-up 262 accounts today!
5. How do I know if I’m an MCE customer?
Get your PG&E statement. On page one, you’ll find:
1. Your account number;
2. Current PG&E Electric Delivery charges, and
3. MCE Electric generation charges. (But that still doesn’t tell you whether you are Deep Green or not.)
6. How do I know if I’m a DEEP GREEN customer?
On page 3, Details of MCE Electric Generation Charges, on line 10, you’ll see whether you are already Deep Green! Notice that you are charged an additional penny per kWh for that service.
7. How is the $0.01 per kwh charged use by MCE?
MCE uses the penny per kilowatt hour to continue to strengthen and build the renewable energy portfolio in California.How does Deep Green Work if I’m a business?
