LEADERSHIP

Representing our diverse region.

As a public agency, MBCP is governed by a Policy Board and an Operations Board comprised of elected officials, city managers and city administrators. This governing structure assures that the voices from each city and county served by MBCP will have a seat at the table when important decisions regarding MBCP policies and operations are being made.

To further assure that the unique needs of our diverse community are heard, MBCP formed a Community Advisory Council during our first year of operation. All MBCP Board Meetings and Community Advisory Council Meetings are open to the public and MBCP welcomes input from the communities we serve.

Background & Archived Documents

Monterey Bay Community Power created this page to keep our customers informed and to provide opportunities to learn more about energy policies and the regulatory and legislative process that shapes them. The Community Choice Energy (CCE) model, also known as Community Choice Aggregation (CCA) has been growing quickly since the first CCA – MCE (formally Marin Clean Energy) – formed in 2008 and launched service in 2010. Since then, the energy market in California has evolved significantly and will continue to do so. Facing competition from Investor-Owned Utilities, ambitious goals from California legislators and continued mandates from the California Public Utilities Commission, all CCAs have a vested interest in closely monitoring key regulatory and legislative issues. This page highlights some of the key issues and directs visitors to other valuable resources.

The Power Charge Indifference Adjustment is the above market price that PG&E charges all of its customers. For PG&E bundled customers, that fee is part of their generation rates. For customers receiving generation service from MBCP, that fee is distinct and shown in the bill. The key fact is that MBCP generation rates combined with the PCIA is lower than PG&E rates charged to their bundled customers, for more information on PCIA, visit here.
