Competitive Rates & Clean Energy

How do my rates compare? 

When you choose Silicon Valley Clean Energy’s carbon-free energy, you get clean energy at competitive rates. We partner with PG&E to deliver your electricity and ensure we provide transparent costs. The charges you see on your bill can be simplified into two categories:
Electric Generation: This pays for your source of power and how much electricity you’re using. Rates vary, depending on the type of service you choose: SVCE GreenStart, SVCE GreenPrime or PG&E.
Electric Delivery: PG&E still delivers your electricity on existing lines and maintains those lines. PG&E delivery rates are the same for everyone, both SVCE customers and PG&E customers.
PG&E does add additional fees to your bill and those are always included in the cost comparisons below. You’ll find a full explanation of all the items on your bill on the Understanding Your Bill Webpage.

Choose the corresponding tab for residential, small business or large business rate comparisons. In each tab you will find a cost comparison table and additional resource to fully compare your bill.
