California Utilities to Offer Green-e Energy Certified 100% Renewable Energy

February 2015 - With the Green Tariff Shared Renewables Program approved by California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC), nearly 80% of California residents and businesses will have the option to participate in a utility-based green energy program. The new decision directs the state's three largest investor-owned utilities–Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E), Southern California Edison Company (SCE), and San Diego Gas and Electric Company (SDG&E) to offer a Green-e Energy certified 100% renewable energy option. Green-e Energy certifies renewable energy programs that meet environmental and consumer protection standards, and also helps customers better understand the process behind renewable energy they purchased. The CPUC also approved a new voluntary program proposed by PG&E that will allow its customers to purchase 50 percent or 100 percent of their electricity from solar power for an estimated premium of 2 cents to 3 cents per kilowatt-hour. PG&E expects the program costs to fall over time as the costs of solar decline relative to the cost of standard power.
