Dublin Electricity Accounts Will Transition to 100% Renewable Energy in January 2022

East Bay Community Energy (EBCE) began serving Dublin residential, business, and municipal electricity customers in 2018. Customers were placed on EBCE’s Bright Choice service, which is priced one-percent below PG&E rates and is approximately five-percent more renewable energy than PG&E. 

To help meet the greenhouse gas emissions reductions goals set in the City of Dublin’s Climate Action Plan 2030 and Beyond, the Dublin City Council voted in January 2021 to set the default electricity option for Dublin residences to EBCE’s Renewable 100 service, starting in January 2022. All municipal electric accounts in Dublin have been powered by Renewable 100 since July 2019. 

Renewable 100 service is sourced from California wind and solar facilities, including a new wind farm in Livermore. Renewable 100 costs an additional one-cent per kilowatt-hour above PG&E rates. That’s about five dollars more per month for a typical Dublin home.

Customers who prefer to power their home with Bright Choice are welcome to do so by visiting ebce.org/Dublin and clicking on “Remain on Bright Choice,” or by calling 1-833-699-EBCE (3223) during business hours (9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday). Take action by December 22 if you prefer to avoid automatic enrollment in Renewable 100. Customers who are on CARE, FERA, and Medical Baseline programs will remain on Bright Choice service automatically, but can still choose Renewable 100. Customers can change their EBCE service or return to PG&E service at anytime.
