Council members in Napa, American Canyon, Calistoga, St. Helena, and Yountville voted to join MCE to give all electric customers in Napa County the opportunity to purchase more renewable, competitively-priced electricity as an alternative to PG&E’s energy supply. For more information, please visit MCE's website.
What is MCE?
MCE is a not-for-profit, public agency that partners with PG&E to provide electricity generated from more renewable, non-polluting sources. Formed by the public to buy cleaner power and invest in our local economies, MCE has served Bay Area electric customers since 2010 and unincorporated Napa County customers since February 2015.
MCE replaces PG&E’s job of determining power sources, called electric generation. So instead of paying PG&E for both electric delivery and electric generation services, customers pay MCE for generation and PG&E for delivery.
Aside from cleaner energy sources, not much will change. You will continue to enjoy the same reliable electricity. PG&E will continue to deliver your power, maintain the wires, and provide your gas service. To learn more, visit MCE's FAQ page.
Want to speak with someone in person? MCE representatives will be available at Napa City Hall on the following days from 8am - 5pm to answer any questions you have. You can also call (888) 632-3674.
