Meeting of Monterey Bay Community Power
Operations Board of Directors
The Agenda document includes detailed information about the rates and programs they plan to offer.
Current (planned) default product: “MB Choice”, 100% carbon-free (mainly hydro) and 30% renewable. Rate parity with PG&E. 3% rebate paid back to customers.
100% Local Renewable Option: “MB Green+”, allows customers to re-direct their rebate to support the procurement, and eventually the development, of local renewable resources located within MBCP’s Tri-County region.
Local Giving Option: “MB Share”, allows customers to donate their rebate to fund local non-profit projects that lower greenhouse gas emissions and/or support low income rate-payers. It is intended that these donations will be tax deductible to the ratepayer electing this option.
More details: starting on page 76 of the Agenda packet.
we could show up at the meeting and suggest defaulting to “MB Green+” or possibly “MB Share”. Doing so would deliver tremendous benefits for climate and community, while still giving customers an opportunity to claim rebates if desired.
