Marin’s Weekend 101
Be the first in the know
about all things Marin.
some homeowners are receiving an annual
check for the power they provide. We want
to develop as many Marin sources of electric
power as possible — it’s a job creator.
Please explain who makes up your customer
base. Of MCE’s 120,000 customers, approximately 90,000 are in Marin and 30,000 are in
the city of Richmond, which voted to join MCE
in 2012. Seventy-five percent of all electricity
customers in our jurisdiction are with MCE,
and that includes residential, commercial and
municipal users — the rest stayed with PG&E.
About 1,700 have chosen to receive our Deep
Green, or 100 percent renewable power, the
rest are Light Green users. We’ve noticed that
in Richmond, a greater percentage of customers chose to use Deep Green power than do in
Marin. We hope to see more of our customers
every where choose Deep Green in order to
zero out their carbon footprint.
Who maintains oversight over Marin Clean
Energy? The Marin Energy Authority governs MCE; it is a 13-member board composed
of representatives from each of Marin’s 11
municipalities, plus the county’s board of
supervisors and a delegate from Richmond. Of
MEA’s original board, in addition to Supervisor
McGlashan, Tiburon council member Richard
Collins recently passed away. Also, due to
membership turnover on city and town councils, only one member of MEA’s original board
still serves — that being San Rafael councilman
Damon Connolly, the current chairman of our
board. MEA meets once a week at 7 p.m. in San
Rafael on the first Thursday of each month;
meetings are open to the public.
