Clean energy and competitive rates. 

You get both when you choose Silicon Valley Clean Energy’s carbon-free energy. 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.

Click here to view all of our residential electricity generation rates, and how our prices compare to PG&E’s generation rates.

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 in Understanding Your Bill.

Discount Rates

SVCE customers still receive full CARE, FERA and Medical Baseline discounts. Eligibility for these programs remains the same with SVCE, however, there is now a greater discount for SVCE customers in these programs, due to our competitive rates. If you’re already enrolled, you do not need to reapply. New customers in these programs, must apply directly through PG&E. Please have your account number ready.

As an SVCE Medical Baseline customer, you will now receive an even greater discount as an added SVCE benefit. SVCE Medical Baseline customers do not incur the standard Power Charge Indifference Adjustment (PCIA) charged to other SVCE customers—so you now receive over 30% savings on your monthly electricity bills as an SVCE customer!
