Workshop on Clean Energy for San Mateo County residents

Through Peninsula Clean Energy, clean energy could be provided to San Mateo County residents. 

Please join us for a workshop on this exciting new electricity option:

Thursday, January 21st from 8:00 pm – 9:00 pm

City Hall, Council Chambers

333 90th Street

Daly City, CA 94015

 

Come learn and share your opinion on a potential program that would offer residential and commercial electricity customers new energy options, including higher renewable energy content at competitive rates.

The proposed program, called Peninsula Clean Energy, would allow the County and cities to join together to form a joint powers authority (JPA) in order to collectively purchase clean, renewable energy. The County's technical and feasibility study states that Peninsula Clean Energy would be able to provide pricing competitive with PG&E. If the program moves forward, electricity customers in the County would be able to choose between Peninsula Clean Energy and PG&E as their electricity purchaser.

At this workshop, County staff will provide an overview of the program and explain how the formation of Peninsula Clean Energy may affect households or businesses. Residents and business owners are encouraged to provide input on this potential program.

To learn more visit the Peninsula Clean Energy website, and for questions or comments, please contact Kirsten Pringle at 650-363-4088 or kpringle@smcgov.org.

The City Council will consider participating in the program at their January 25 Council Meeting. For questions regarding the City's involvement in the program, please contact Stephen Stolte, Sustainability Coordinator for Daly City, at (650) 991-8126 or sstolte@dalycity.org
