When you choose SCP, you are choosing energy with half the emissions compared to PG&E at no additional cost.
The price of your energy is comprised of two distinct components: Electric Generation and Electric Delivery. SCP replaces PG&E’s generation service with its own generation service.
All customers continue to pay PG&E for maintaining the grid and delivering the electricity to our homes, this service is called Electric Delivery.
Electric Generation: This is the cost of the actual electricity you are using in your home. SCP purchases cleaner electricity on the open market and fills PG&E’s power lines. Rates vary, depending on the type of service you choose: SCP CleanStart (default), SCP EverGreen (premium), or PG&E.
Electric Delivery: PG&E delivers your electricity on their existing power lines and maintains the poles and wires (“the grid”). PG&E delivery rates are the same for SCP customers and PG&E customers.
PG&E adds two additional fees to your bill as an SCP customer. These fees are included in the cost comparisons below. You can find a full explanation of all the items on your bill in Understanding Your Bill.
Please note: SCP has been notified by the California Energy Commission that the phone number they provided us for their Renewables Call Center has changed since we mailed all customers our 2016 Power Content Label. The new toll-free number is (844) 454-2906. The Renewables Call Center is open Monday through Friday, 8 am to 5 pm (excluding holidays).
Rates are set by SCP’s Board of Directors, a group of local elected public officials who seek community input before annual rate changes go into effect.
