Cleaner Electricity. Lower Rates. Community Benefits.

East Bay Community Energy, also known as EBCE, is the new local electricity supplier in Alameda County. EBCE will provide cleaner, greener energy at competitive rates to our customers. EBCE will reinvest earnings back into the community to create local green energy jobs, local programs, and clean power projects.

In Alameda County, we know powerful and lasting change comes from the ground up. That’s why the County and 11 of its cities have come together to create a cleaner, greener energy supply for our communities. EBCE member cities include Albany, Berkeley, Dublin, Emeryville, Fremont, Hayward, Livermore, Oakland, Piedmont, San Leandro, and Union City.

Demand Response Programs at EBCE

EBCE executed a demand response pilot program during summer 2018, paying out over $100,000 to commercial customers that cut demand during peak periods. The program was modeled on PG&E’s Peak Day Pricing, where customers respond to day-ahead notifications of hours of expected high demand. Cutting demand at those peak times helps with grid stability and reduces costs for all customers, not just those who respond. EBCE is expanding the program in 2019 to customers on A10, E19, and E20 rate schedules. EBCE customers may also participate in 3rd party demand response programs.
