SVCE "turns on the power" for residents and businesses
The Silicon Valley Clean Energy (SVCE) board of directors and staff held a press conference in front of the Cupertino Community Hall to commemorate the first official day SVCE began supplying 100% carbon-free electricity to customers in Silicon Valley. More than 75 guests attended the event on Monday, April 3.
“Silicon Valley Clean Energy, by utilizing clean, renewable and carbon-free energy, reduces approximately one-quarter of our region’s carbon emissions from electricity use. This is a huge leap forward,” said Rob Rennie, Town of Los Gatos Vice Mayor and SVCE Board Chair, during his opening remarks.
More communities choose 100% renewable power with GreenPrime
Four additional Silicon Valley Clean Energy (SVCE) member agencies have upgraded their municipal electricity accounts to 100% renewable energy with SVCE’s GreenPrime electricity choice. The City of Los Altos upgraded their municipal electricity accounts at their January city council meeting followed by the Town of Los Gatos at their February town council meeting.
The City of Gilroy made their decision at the beginning of March, with Los Altos Hills upgrading in March as well. With the actions of these communities, ten of the twelve SVCE member agencies have upgraded their municipal electric accounts to receive 100% renewable and 100% carbon-free electricity.
