San José Clean Energy
Overview
San José Clean Energy (SJCE) is the City of San José's proposed Community Choice Aggregation (CCA) program. CCAs allow governments to buy electricity for their businesses and residents.

SJCE would provide the same electricity service you have now but with more renewable energy options at competitive rates. If established, SJCE would be a partnership with PG&E. SJCE would purchase cleaner power, set rates, and retain revenue. PG&E would maintain the grid, deliver the energy, and send you a bill.
