Marin Clean Energy (MCE)

Press Enter to show all options, press Tab go to next option

Starting right now, Lafayette residents and businesses can choose between using Marin Clean Energy (MCE) or PG&E to supply their power. You will receive multiple mailers over the next few months alerting you to this change, and giving the choice between the power providers.  If you take no action, you will automatically be enrolled in MCE’s “light green” power supply, which is made up of 50-percent renewable power.   Looking to go carbon free?  Customers can also choose to opt-up to MCE’s “dark green” 100-percent renewable option or MCE’s “local sol” 100-percent local solar option.  Finally, customers who like the power they get from PG&E can stay with that long-time power provider, whose energy clicks in at about 30-percent renewables at any time. 

Whichever option you choose, the new power will start flowing to you at the start of the September billing cycle.  On June 16, 2016, (MCE) Board of Directors voted to reduce energy rates by approximately 9%, -- a rate reduction that is nicely timed to coincide with the enrollment of Lafayette electricity customers.   

In the upcoming months, there will be meetings in Lafayette and Walnut Creek that residents and businesses are encouraged to attend. MCE will also be at Lafayette Art and Wine Festival and meeting with various clubs, organizations, and HOAs in the City.  Upcoming MCE events can be found here.

If you have questions regarding your options, how to read your bill, or how this rate reduction will affect you, call MCE at (888) 632-3674 or e-mail them at
