Valley Clean Energy is the official, locally governed electric generation provider for Davis, Woodland, Winters and unincorporated Yolo County. We offer clean electricity and local control over electricity supply for the same cost. We’re a not-for-profit agency, so we are able to reinvest revenues right back into our member communities. We’re working together for a healthier climate.

How It Works

Valley Clean Energy pools the electricity demands of our communities and purchases power with higher renewable and lower greenhouse gas (GHG) content. PG&E continues to deliver electricity, maintain the power lines, handle customer billing, and respond to new service requests and emergencies. You may choose to remain with PG&E for your electric generation at any time.
