CleanPowerSF Offers San Francisco residents cleaner energy at lower rates

The electric charges on your bill can be simplified into two categories of charges:

1) Electric Delivery Rates – PG&E delivery rates are the same for CleanPowerSF and non-CleanPowerSF customers.

2) Electric Generation Rates – Generation rates vary depending on the service that you choose: PG&E, CleanPowerSF Green, or CleanPowerSF Supergreen.

If you choose CleanPowerSF service, CleanPowerSF will replace PG&E’s charges for generation. PG&E will also add additional fees to your bill. We always include these added fees in cost comparisons. See the cost comparison table below for an estimate of how much you can save with CleanPowerSF. Contact us to discuss any questions you might have, or to request a bill comparison using your historic billing data.

Discount Rates: Customers that are enrolled in CleanPowerSF will still receive their full CARE/FERA and Medical Baseline discounts. There’s no need to reapply, and there is no change in the discount rates.
