Pacific Gas and Electric Company Key Developments

Pacific Gas and Electric Company Launches its Solar Choice Program

Pacific Gas and Electric Company launched PG&E's Solar Choice program, extending the option for 100% solar power to customers who are not planning to install rooftop solar panels. Customers can purchase half or all of their electric power from solar energy locally sourced in Northern and Central California, reducing their carbon footprint and driving the development of new solar resources within the state. For a modest charge, PG&E's Solar Choice program extends solar access and benefits to residential and business customers regardless of their location or ability to physically install rooftop solar. As the program develops, the solar energy purchased by customers will be sourced from new solar projects built by developers across PG&E's service area, bringing new green jobs to Northern and Central California. PG&E's Solar Choice can help renters, homeowners, businesses and cities meet their own sustainability, clean energy or climate goals. Additionally, participating organizations could qualify for LEED points for green building leadership as well as the US Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Green Power Partnership for electricity generated from renewable resources. Kelly Slater Wave Company is one of the first California businesses to partner with PG&E's Solar Choice to go 100% solar, purchasing renewable energy with zero greenhouse gas emissions and lowering their carbon footprint. The company is powering their new wave technology and high-performance training center in California's Central Valley. PG&E recently announced that all of its operations service centers - nearly 100 facilities in Northern and Central California - will be 100% powered by solar energy through PG&E's Solar Choice program. PG&E's Solar Choice program is Green-e Energy Certified.
