As your local public electricity provider, we source clean energy from renewable resources—geothermal, water, wind, solar, and biomass—and deliver our power to residents and businesses throughout Sonoma and Mendocino counties. At Sonoma Clean Power, we’re invested in the communities we live and work in. We deliver services that enhance quality of life through competitive pricing, improved air quality, and energy efficiency. By changing the way residents source energy, we’re able to deliver customer programs that make a difference in everyone’s life.
Powered by innovative thinking, Sonoma Clean Power was formed to provide a choice beyond for-profit, investor-owned utilities (in our case, PG&E). Today SCP is a model for community choice programs throughout California. By providing higher percentages of renewable energy that reduce greenhouse gas emissions, our customers are helping solve the climate crisis at a local level.
Does SCP replace PG&E?
SCP replaces PG&E’s electric generation service with its own electric generation service. Customers continue to pay PG&E for maintaining the grid (called “delivery”). We purchase cleaner electricity, then feed it through PG&E’s wires to deliver it to your home or business. PG&E handles the billing (one combined bill), service starts and stops when you move, and resolves outages.
What is Sonoma Clean Power?
Sonoma Clean Power is a not-for-profit public agency operated by the Cities of Cloverdale, Cotati, Fort Bragg, Petaluma, Point Arena, Rohnert Park, Santa Rosa, Sebastopol, Sonoma, Willits and the Town of Windsor, and the Counties of Sonoma and Mendocino.
SCP generates electricity for our customers in Sonoma and Mendocino counties from cleaner sources with lower emissions at about the same price as PG&E. Since our inception in 2014, we’ve managed to save our customers tens of millions of dollars in on-bill savings.
PG&E continues to maintain the grid, repair power lines and does all billing, exactly as they always have.
