What is MBCP?Monterey Bay Community Power (MBCP) is the new locally-controlled default electric generation service provider for all customers in Monterey, Santa Cruz, and San Benito Counties.As a community owned public agency, net revenues are reinvested in the tri-county region. Community Choice Energy allows communities to buy clean-source power at a cost lowerthan PG&E, while retaining PG&E’s role in maintaining power lines and providing customer service. Profits that once went to PG&E shareholders will be returned to customers, who can choose to receive a rebate or reinvest in local nonprofits and renewable energy projects. We want to make sure you understand the change and your options. Unless you opt out, the change is effective based on your meter read date in July 2018 for residential customers. Commercial customers were enrolled in March 2018.
How does it work? PG&E will continue to deliver the electricity from the grid to your home or business, maintain the power lines, read your meter, and send you a single, consolidated bill. The only change is an opportunity to choose between different energy options—for the first time ever – with an annual rebate. If your home or business is in a MBCP service area, you will be automatically enrolled in the program.
Can I opt out?You can choose to opt out and return to PG&E “bundled service” at anytime during the enrollment period by calling (888) 909-6227 or at mbcommunitypower.org/opt-out/. There is no fee to opt out before enrollment or within 60 days after MBCP service starts. Modest fees of $5/residential and $25/commercial account apply thereafter.
