Welcome to EBCE

The East Bay is leading the transition to cleaner power.

Our communities launched a public power agency in 2018 to provide greener energy, lower rates, and local community benefits.

About EBCE

At the end of 2019, City Councilmembers in Pleasanton and Newark of Alameda County, as well as Tracy of San Joaquin County, unanimously voted to join East Bay Community Energy. These new communities will be eligible for service in 2021. To learn more, visit the implementation plan here (PDF).
