Energy Choices

VCE camay valley farms 1Valley Clean Energy gives you the power to choose. In addition to providing an alternative to PG&E, we’re also offering two different energy product options, each with a different level of clean energy.

If your home or business is within our service area, you will be automatically enrolled in our standard service which offers a higher level of renewable energy compared to PG&E. For customers who want to do even more to help the environment, you can upgrade your power with our 100% renewable energy product, UltraGreen.

In April 2018, new VCE customers received the first of four notices informing them of their options with Valley Clean Energy:

VCE Commercial Notice | VCE Residential Notice

You also have the choice to opt out and return to PG&E “bundled service”.
