Small changes to your bill - big changes for your community

Committed to providing cleaner energy at a lower cost, MBCP replaces PG&E’s role in determining how and where your electricity is generated. MBCP sources electricity exclusively from carbon-free and renewable energy sources and PG&E continues to deliver electricity and maintain electric infrastructure along with billing and customer service. 
You will continue to receive one PG&E bill with MBCP charges taking the place of PG&E’s charges for electric generation. You will see a new line item on the first page of your bill, and a new MBCP page. Rest assured, these are not new or extra charges. MBCP is simply taking the place of PG&E as your electricity generation provider.

What to expect during enrollment:

Enrollment for Morro Bay and San Luis Obispo begins 60 days prior to your January PG&E statement date and extends through 60 days past your January statement date. Enrollment is free and automatic. MBCP will be mailing notices using various media to ensure a high open-rate, beginning in November. Notice 1 will be mailed in November, notice 2 will hit mailboxes in December. January your service begins with MBCP on your statement date. February, you will receive your first PG&E bill that includes MBCP charges for electric generation. You will also receive notice 3. Finally, you will receive notice 4 in March.
