The story of your electricity service with SV Clean Energy

Clean energy provided by a local not-for-profit agency.

SV Clean Energy is a locally-rooted, community choice energy agency that works in partnership with PG&E. We buy clean electricity and build new renewable energy projects. PG&E then delivers this electricity over their existing infrastructure of wires and lines. PG&E continues to maintain power lines and provide customer service support.

Your energy bill also continues to come from PG&E, with SV Clean Energy’s lower generation charges replacing those from PG&E. To see how this looks on your energy bill, check out our Understanding Your Bill webpage.
