On Tuesday, May 16, 2017 the San José City Council voted unanimously to establish San José Clean Energy (SJCE), the City of San José's Community Choice Energy (CCE) program. CCEs allow governments to buy electricity for their businesses and residents. With SJCE, San José is now the largest single jurisdiction in California to operate a CCE. SJCE is expected to launch in September 2018 for City Accounts and March 2019 for residents and businesses.
SJCE will provide the same electricity service you have now but with more renewable energy options at competitive rates. SJCE will be a partnership with PG&E. SJCE will purchase cleaner power, set rates, and retain revenue. PG&E will maintain the grid, deliver the energy, and send you a bill.
