On February 2, 2016, the Saratoga City Council approved joining a countywide Community Choice Energy (CCE) partnership. This partnership pools customer electricity demand and accelerates the shift toward the use of renewable energy with low greenhouse gas (GHG) emitting energy sources through a community procurement program.
Saratoga residents now have a choice to select a higher proportion of green renewable energy sources with lower or cost-neutral rates, or continue with Pacific Gas and Electric's energy source selection. Pacific Gas and Electric remains an essential partner through providing energy to customers, maintaining the distribution system, and billing customers. The difference is in the source of the power you select.
