Cleaner, Greener Electricity Coming to SF Businesses This Summer

On July 1st, 25,000 SF commercial electricity customers will join the City’s popular CleanPowerSF program

San Francisco, CA—Businesses in San Francisco will start receiving cleaner, greener electricity this summer as part of the next large-scale enrollment of the City’s popular community choice energy program called CleanPowerSF. On July 1, the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission (SFPUC) will automatically enroll eligible commercial electricity customers citywide into the program, which provides customers with at least 43% renewable energy from sources like wind, solar and geothermal. That’s significantly more than the 33% renewable energy that PG&E is currently offering customers and it comes at a competitive price. CleanPowerSF customers can also choose to completely reduce their carbon footprint by upgrading to SuperGreen, CleanPowerSF’s 100% renewable energy product. Under the program, PG&E continues to maintain the power grid, respond to outages and send monthly bills. With CleanPowerSF, customers will simply get cleaner, greener electricity at competitive rates.

“We are giving you a choice to power your homes and businesses with cleaner electricity at a competitive price,” said SFPUC General Manager Harlan L. Kelly, Jr. “Every customer who chooses CleanPowerSF is making a real and immediate positive impact on our environment. CleanPowerSF helps families change their future, helps our businesses meet their sustainability goals and helps our City lower its overall carbon emission profile. As the City’s clean, local energy provider, we will continue to work hard every day to bring clean, safe and reliable energy to all San Francisco residents and businesses.”

Commercial customers who are selected for the upcoming enrollment will begin receiving notices via U.S. mail this month. The SFPUC anticipates enrolling all eligible San Francisco customers in CleanPowerSF by July 2019.
CleanPowerSF is a not-for-profit program that launched in 2016 with a mission to provide San Francisco electricity customers with the choice of having their electricity supplied from clean, renewable sources at a competitive price. In partnership with PG&E, CleanPowerSF is now serving cleaner energy to more than 80,000 San Francisco customers (and counting).

·         Salesforce steps up its clean-energy game with San Francisco CCA

·         Renewable energy is making San Francisco cannabis grow super-green

·         LinkedIn chooses 100% renewable energy through CleanPowerSF
