MBCP Turns 1!

What a difference a year makes! March 1, 2018 was MBCP’s first day of service, making today our one year anniversary; 365 days of providing cleaner energy at a lower cost to the Monterey Bay region!... and millions of dollars invested in the communities we serve.
Everything we do at MBCP is made possible with the support of our community, 97% of whom are MBCP customers in favor of a locally controlled energy model that supports clean energy and local benefits. From cost-savings totaling $4.4 million to signing contracts for three brand new renewable energy projects to bringing the cites of San Luis Obispo and Morro Bay into the MBCP family, it has been a year filled with action and accomplishments. Thank you for making it possible, we wish all of you a happy anniversary, too!
In honor of our one-year anniversary MBCP is offering a special MBprime promotion during the month of March – sign up for 100% renewable energy and you’ll be automatically entered to win a Blix Electric Bike and more. Join the contest celebration below:

Community Power Festival Returns Sept. 21
To celebrate the launch of residential service last year, MBCP hosted the Clean Air Fair in downtown Monterey as well as the Community Power Festival in Santa Cruz. At both events, we shared warm and sunny days with thousands of attendees, hundreds of whom also got behind the wheel of an electric vehicle for a free and fun test drive!
In 2019 we expect bigger crowds and even warmer weather with our new late-September date. We’re also proud to announce that this year, we’re putting all of our energy into one event and one name so we can build a tradition of supporting community organizations and businesses, as well as educating our community about clean energy and sustainability. We invite you to join us for the 2 nd Annual Community Power Festival on Saturday, September 21 in downtown Monterey.
This free, educational and family-friendly event will again feature local vendors including local non-profits doing great work in our community, delicious food, live music, and electric vehicle (EV) test drives from local dealerships. Save the date, more information is to come!
