Big Changes in the Delivery of Power to Lafayette

Thursday, June 9, 7pm, Lafayette Library & Learning Center

Whether you have a business or a home in Lafayette, you are about to discover that unless you "opt out" you will soon be receiving your electricity from MCE (Marin Clean Energy).  The city council approved the change as a way to lower the "carbon footprint" of Lafayette.  You have choices.  Learn about them when the Lamorinda Democratic Club hosts COMMUNITY CHOICE ENERGY  on Thursday, June 9, 7:00pm at the Lafayette Library & Learning Center.  MCE, a non-profit agency, replaces PG&E's job of determining power sources.  Instead of paying PG&E for electric delivery and electric generation, customer will now pay MCE for generation and PG&E for delivery.  You will still be billed by PG&E.  You will have a choice to "opt out" and stay with PG&E or pick one of MCE's programs.  Light Green comes from 52% renewable energy, Deep Green comes from 100% renewable sources and Local Sol comes from 100% local solar.  Costs will vary.
