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.
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.
Your enrollment month will be January 2020 or April 2020 depending on which month is closest to your PG&E True-up. You will receive two mailed notices in the two months prior to your enrollment. If your enrollment is in April, you will receive your mailed notices in February and March. Click here for more NEM information.
