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 carbonfree electricity at competitive rates. Thirteen communities in Santa Clara County govern 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 and lower energy generation rates. PG&E continues to deliver electricity over existing infrastructure, maintain power lines and provide customer service as they always have. Your bill continues to come from PG&E, with SVCE’s lower generation charges replacing those from PG&E.
