Opting Up

Opt up to the 100% renewable REpower+ rate.

If you’re ready to step up to 100% renewable energy and help Humboldt County be a leader in greenhouse gas reduction, you can opt up to our REpower+ service today. With REpower+, all of the power you purchase will be generated from renewable sources, such as wind, solar, and local biomass. REpower+ costs $0.01 more per kWh compared to our standard REpower energy mix. For an average residential household that uses 550 kWh per month, the added monthly cost is only $5.50 to have 100% renewable electricity.

Just complete our form below to be upgraded to 100% renewable power. If the online form is not working, you can also call us at 1 (800) 931-7232 to access an automated phone system to opt-up, or speak with a representative.

Opting Out

Opt out of Community Choice Energy and return to PG&E Service.

If you wish to opt out of RCEA’s Community Choice Energy program, you can fill out the form below to return to bundled PG&E service. If the online form is not working, you can also call us at 1 (800) 931-7232 to access an automated phone system to opt-out, or speak with a representative.

But remember—with Community Choice, you’re still getting PG&E’s transmission and distribution service, which means PG&E continues to read your meter, bill you, and maintain the power lines. The only difference is that the electricity generation is being provided by RCEA—it’s lower cost, and more local, with revenues that stay in Humboldt County. If you have questions, perhaps our Q & A page can help. Or call us at 1 (800) 931-7232 for additional information.

If you have opted out of Redwood Coast Energy Authority’s Community Choice Program and you still see us on your bill, there are two possible explanations:

  1. Your meter was read and a new bill was generated within 5 days of when you contacted us to opt out, which is not enough time for your opt out to be processed. You should see the changes on your following bill.
  2. Customers who recently had a new Smart Meter installed were inadvertently processed with a new service ID number in PG&E’s billing system. These new service IDs were interpreted as new customers, and since new accounts are automatically enrolled in our program, your new meter ID needs to be opted out as well. Please let us know if this may be the case with you, or if you have any questions. We apologize for the inconvenience. (800) 931-7232
