What Changes Can Residential Customers Expect With MBCP?
MBCP provides lower cost and local control of our energy sources, combined with the same reliable electric delivery and billing services that PG&E has always provided. All MBCP customers will receive a 3% rebate on electricity generation in the form of a credit on their bill this December.
Non-residential (Business, agriculture, industrial) service from MBCP began on March 1. With 97% customer enrollment, the Tri-County business and agriculture communities are in full support of the Community Choice Energy model and MBCP. In just six weeks of service, MBCP has helped our community eliminate an estimated 119,442,645 pounds of CO2 from the atmosphere!
At full capacity in 2019, MBCP anticipates reducing emissions by 556,983 metric tons of CO2 per year!
This equates to 1,113,966,000 pounds of CO2 avoided by MBCP per year.
