renewableJoin the Renewable Energy Movement

Peninsula Clean Energy (PCE) is celebrating its one year anniversary as San Mateo County's electricity provider. With PCE, Burlingame residents, along with the rest of the County, are now getting electricity comprised of at least 50% renewable energy from sources like wind and solar. Since its 2016 launch, PCE customers have reduced carbon emission by 56 million pounds. We can do better. Join the close to 2,000 PCE customers that have opted-up to the ECO100 option to receive 100% renewable energy. Burlingame signed up its own municipal accounts to ECO100. You can do the same here!
