About Our Service

Building a Clean Energy Future in Silicon Valley

Silicon Valley Clean Energy (SVCE) is redefining the local electricity market, providing our residents and businesses with new clean energy choices—renewable and carbon free electricity at competitive rates. Twelve communities in Santa Clara County formed SVCE, creating a community-owned agency. For these communities, SVCE is now your official electricity provider. 

We work in partnership with PG&E. We buy clean electricity direct from the source—encouraging the kind of market growth and competition that results in more renewable energy sources and lower energy generation rates. PG&E delivers the electricity over existing power lines, and continues to maintain the lines and provide customer service as they always have. Your bill continues to come from PG&E, with SVCE generation charges replacing those from PG&E.
