Central Coast Community Energy Electric Generation Charges
The CCCE Electric Generation Charges may look like a new or extra charge, but you’ve always paid electric generation charges, along with the Franchise Fee and PCIA Charge. But you never knew it because these costs were hidden inside PG&E or SCE’s Bundled Services Charge.
Now that CCCE is responsible for how and where your electricity is generated, these charges have been broken out as separate line items. Just one of the ways that CCCE is providing customers like you more transparency and accountability.
Remember, your utility provider has always charged for both electric generation and delivery. Now you save money with CCCE providing your electric generation.
Did you know? If your electricity costs have increased, it is likely due to seasonal changes in energy use or extended use of certain appliances at more expensive times of day as well as potential changes to a utility provider’s gas and electric rates. CCCE rates continue to be competitive and affordable for our customers.
Clean energy at a lower cost.
In 2018 and 2019, CCCE matched the utility providers’ electric generation rates, providing a periodic cost savings to customers through a CCCE rebate applied to customer’s electric bill. As of January 2020, customers now receive their CCCE cost savings directly on their monthly bill through a lower electric generation rate.
CCCE provided $4.4 million in savings in 2018 compared to what its customers would have paid your utility provider, and that number increased to $12.7 million in savings for 2019.
