CEC is offering prizes and incentives through January 2018 to encourage Burlingame residents and businesses to opt up to ECO100, which provides energy that is 100 percent sustainable and carbon free. Learn more about CEC’s OptUpBurlingame Clean Energy Campaign.
Launched in 2016 by San Mateo County and all 20 cities, is the county’s official electricity provider. PCE offers two options for customers: ECOplus is the default rate with 50 percent renewable energy content, and ECO100 is the opt-up option providing 100 percent renewable energy. The ECOplus option costs about 5 percent less than the existing Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E) rate, while the ECO100 option costs about 5 percent more.
CEC will award a gift from a local business to the first 500 Burlingame residents who opt up to ECO100 by January 31, 2018, and a window sign, newsletter mentions, tweets and website presence to the first 200 Burlingame businesses that opt up to ECO100 by January 31, 2018. Learn more.
