Monterey Bay Community Power offers three key benefits, available through all service offerings:
Reduction in greenhouse gas emissions
Lower cost to customers
Investment in our local community
Thank you for your interest in Monterey Bay Community Power’s service offerings. We are excited to be nearing the second phase of launching our carbon-free electricity service for Monterey, San Benito and Santa Cruz Counties.
Phase One: All non-residential customers were automatically enrolled in MBCP’s MBchoice service offering beginning March 1, 2018.
Phase Two: All residential customers will be automatically enrolled in MBCP’s MBchoice service offering beginning July 1, 2018.
MBCP procures electricity from carbon-free sources such as solar, wind, and hydroelectric. In addition to being carbon-free, MBCP does not use power produced from nuclear energy or any fossil-based sources.
As a public, not-for-profit agency, MBCP is committed to returning surplus revenues to our customers and our community. All customers will receive a 3% rebate in 2018 and this rebate is projected to increase to 4% in 2019.
As an MBCP customer, you get to choose where your savings goes. MBchoice customers receive their rebate as a credit on their bill. Customers who choose to redirect their rebate in support of our community and our planet can choose between MBgreen+ or MBshare, funding the growth of renewable energy resources and projects in our community and supporting low-income rate payers.
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 also choose MBgreen+ or MBshare at any time to put your rebate towards investing in our community and our environment:
For a Renewable Future
MBgreen+ allows customers to redirect their rebate to support the procurement, and eventually the development of local renewable resources located within our tri-county region. Rates remain the same as MBchoice.
At any time you may switch to MBshare or back to MBchoice, free of charge. Participation is effective as of your next rebate credit cycle. You can change your enrollment through this page or by calling
For Local Giving
MBshare allows customers to donate their rebate to fund local non-profit projects that lower greenhouse gas emissions and support low income rate-payers. MBCP staff are in initial discussions with community foundations as possible donor options. Rates remain the same as MBchoice.
