Service Options

Transmission lines from Humboldt County

Whether large or small, businesses are always interested in improving the bottom line. Community Choice Energy helps you to do the right thing for your employees, your community and the planet while you’re saving money.

The Redwood Coast Energy Authority offers you lower rates for electricity that’s cleaner, and more locally produced. And program revenues stay in the county to support job development and renewable infrastructure, so it’s a winning proposition all around.

When customers sign up for electricity service, they are automatically enrolled in RCEA’s electricity generation service. There are still four different options associated with RCEA’s service depending on your preference and choices you have made previously.

  1. Opt up to 100% Carbon-free and Renewable RePower+
  2. Opt out of RCEA’s generation service and return to PG&E as a “bundled” customer
  3. Opt down to our default service if previously enrolled in RePower+
  4. Opt back into RCEA’s generation service if previously opted out and have been a bundled PG&E customer.

See the options below and the associated forms. If you have questions about any of them, please give us a call and we’d be happy to discuss them with you.

Opting Up

REpower plus logo, 100% renewable electricity

Opt up to the 100% renewable and carbon-free REpower+ rate.

If your business goals focus on reducing your company’s carbon footprint, you might want to opt up to our REpower+ service today.

With REpower+, all of the power you purchase will be generated from renewable and carbon-free sources, such as wind, solar, and small hydro (see our Power Resources page for details).

REpower+ costs $0.01 more per kWh compared to our standard REpower energy mix.

For an average small business using 1500 kWh per month, the added monthly cost would be $15.

Just complete this form to be upgraded to 100% renewable power, or 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 this form to return to bundled PG&E service, or 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—the rates are competitive, it’s more local, and the increased revenues stay in Humboldt County. If you have questions, check our FAQ page or give us a call.

Opting Down

Opt down to the 40% renewable REpower rate.

If you previously opted up to RCEA’s RePower + 100% renewable electricity service and would like to return to our default service, please use this form.



Opting Back In

If you previously opted out of RCEA’s RePower electricity services and would like to sign up again, please use this form.
