Energy sources

The solar energy you purchase comes from a pool of PG&E solar projects in our service territory.

You can elect to purchase renewable energy from a specific project within PG&E's service territory.

Enrollment

You can elect to purchase solar energy to match either 50% or 100% of your energy use. Enrollment is easy – sign in to your PG&E online account or call us at 1-877-743-8429.

You can enroll by locating a project and contacting the developer. You'll be able to contract directly with the developer for a desired amount of renewable energy that's between 25% and 100% of your annual energy usage.

Billing

You receive a modest charge on your PG&E monthly energy statement for the clean solar energy. Calculate your estimated monthly premium with our Rate Calculator.

Renewable developers invoice you directly for your renewable power. In turn, you receive a bill credit on your monthly PG&E energy statement. View your expected bill credit at Regional Renewable Choice.
