Among the many innovative programs that Peninsula Clean Energy offers its customers in San Mateo County is its Healthy Home Connect program. It's designed to assist struggling families in San Mateo County not only with energy-efficiency issues that call for such improvements as new insulation, weather stripping and window replacement, but with health-related concerns as well. Your home could literally be making you ill. Health-related triggers such as poor ventilation, rodent infestation and leaking roofs can set off a host of ailments...
Over the next three years, Peninsula Clean Energy will be investing $10 million to develop short- and long-term plans and infrastructure to ensure communities will have access to potentially life-saving energy, even in the event of a natural disaster. “Energy resiliency is the idea that all of our customers have access to electricity even if the grid goes down,” said Siobhan Doherty, Peninsula Clean Energy Director of Power Resources.
For the next two months, your electric bill will include a credit called the “California Climate Credit.” This electric credit is typically distributed in April and October, but the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) has changed the distribution of the October electric credit so that it is applied to your bill earlier this year. This is an action the CPUC is taking to ensure that higher electric bills from staying at home don’t become an added hardship for customers. For May and June, the electric credit is $17.87. Because of this, your bill may seem lower than normal.

The credit comes from a state program that requires power plants, natural gas distributors and other large emitters of greenhouse gases to buy carbon pollution permits. The credit represents your share of the payments from the State's program. Please visit: to learn more about the credit.
