Monterey Bay Community Power

Overview

Monterey Bay Community Power (MBCP) is a regional project among local government agencies that will provide electricity to residents and businesses throughout Monterey, San Benito, and Santa Cruz Counties through the Community Choice Energy (CCE) model. CCE enables communities to choose clean-source power at a cost equivalent to the existing utility, PG&E, while retaining PG&E’s role in maintaining power lines and providing customer service. The CCE model helps ensure local economic vitality because money from rates paid by local customers stays local. Surplus revenues that would normally flow to PG&E will stay in the community to help fund renewable energy projects, create jobs and stimulate the economy.

MBCP anticipates delivering 65%-70% of its electrical energy from renewable sources. In total, the program has the potential to remove more than 80 thousand pounds of CO2 from annual greenhouse gas emissions.

Green Churches

We’re working with the Roman Catholic Diocese of Monterey in California to transform churches into beacons of sustainable energy production for the community. For Catholics, this has become a matter of spiritual importance.

Green California

California is the country’s environmental leader. But the Trump administration has promises to double down on dirty energy production, threatening all the progress we’ve made. Together, we can secure a clean energy future for California.
