Cleaner Electricity. Lower Rates. Community Benefits.

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. Together, we’ve formed East Bay Community Energy (EBCE) – our new local power supplier that puts people and the planet first.

With EBCE, Alameda County residents and businesses now have a cleaner, greener, and more affordable choice for electricity. Focused on providing the local community with cost savings on sustainable energy, EBCE is the bright choice for the East Bay!

How we’ll do it

EBCE partners with PG&E. We procure electricity from greener sources, while PG&E continues to deliver power, handle customer billing, maintain the power lines, and respond to new service requests and emergencies. The result is you’ll receive cleaner energy at lower rates without having to do a thing.

Customers who want 100% clean energy can choose to upgrade to our Brilliant 100 service for the same price you currently pay PG&E.

Your power. Your choice. Customers will have a choice of two clean power services—each with a different percentage of renewable and carbon-free electricity, including a 100% clean energy option!

It’s a proven concept

This type of service, called Community Choice Energy (CCE), is already working in Marin, San Francisco, San Mateo, and Sonoma Counties and is also being considered in most other Bay Area counties. Statewide, 16 counties and the City of San José are developing similar services.
