Monterey Bay Community Power is a new, locally-controlled public agency providing carbon-free electricity to residents and businesses in Monterey, San Benito and Santa Cruz Counties. MBCP is based on a local energy model called community choice energy that partners with the local utility (in our case PG&E) which continues to provide consolidated billing, power transmission and distribution, customer service and grid maintenance services. PG&E accounts within MBCP’s tri-county service area will be automatically enrolled in MBCP’s default electric program starting in spring 2018, unless they choose to opt-out and return to PG&E bundled service at any time. MBCP will match PG&E’s electric generation rates, inclusive of any exit fees, and will pay each account
holder a minimum 3% rebate for savings realized in 2018.
