Residents and businesses are automatically enrolled as customers of Monterey Bay Community Power. Business customers will be enrolled in March 2018. Residential customers will be enrolled in July 2018. MBCP offers three key benefits, available through all service offerings: reduction in greenhouse gas emissions, lower cost to customers and investment in our local community. MBCP procures electricity from carbon-free sources such as solar, wind and hydroelectric. In addition to being carbon-free, MBCP’s offerings are classified as 30% renewable, exceeding State requirements. MBCP will not procure power from nuclear or fossil-based sources.
MBchoice is our standard electric generation offering, automatically available to all customers, with rates that match PG&E’s, and are inclusive of costs related to exit fees charged by PG&E. Customers will realize a cost savings over PG&E’s rates, thanks to a minimum 3% rebate in 2018 for all customers. Rebates will be credited annually for residential customers, bi-annually for small and medium-sized businesses, and quarterly for large businesses.
Customers can choose MBgreen+ or MBshare at any time to use your rebate to invest in our community and our environment.
