For example, customers participating in electric programs and rates like the California Alternative Rates for Energy (CARE), Family Electric Rate Assistance (FERA), and Medical Baseline will continue to receive the discounts from these programs in addition to the cheaper rates offered by WCE without needing to re-apply, or fill out any additional paperwork. Unfortunately, they do. In a prominent section of its website, Desert Community Energy gives you the option to “opt down” to its semi-green, less expensive Desert Saver Plan. WCE’s Board of Directors, comprised of locally elected officials from participating jurisdictions, adopted a rate schedule that will save WCE customers about 2% on their electric bills compared to their current bills. In much smaller type, near the bottom of the page, it offers the option to remain with Southern California Edison. But in the America that I remember, when a company had a better product, they put it on the market and let the customer choose. Instead of paying Southern California Edison (SCE) directly residents would pay the Community Choice Aggregator of power (CCA). endstream endobj 8214 0 obj <. Maybe yes, maybe no.

But here’s the most important thing they told you: Residential, commercial and municipal electricity customers in Palm Springs will be automatically enrolled in DCE when the program launches, bypassing the inconvenience of an application process. �:�&?��� WCE is a joint powers authority, consisting of the Cities of Norco, Canyon Lake, Eastvale, Hemet, Jurupa Valley, Perris, and Wildomar, and was formed in 2018 for the purpose of developing a Community Choice Aggregation (CCA) Program that will purchase energy on behalf of its residents and businesses, potentially offering lower rates than Southern California Edison (SCE) can provide. According to Mayor Pro Tem Raymond Gregory, “Being green is good. On March 25, Cathedral City had the decency to withdraw from the program. Their current market share is 87% of the energy customers in their area.

Every WCE customer will continue to receive a SCE bill, the only change is WCE will be listed as the provider of the electric generation portion of the bill.
