Pacific Gas and Electric Co. (PG&E) has reached an agreement with consumer, labor and other groups to give electric customers an opportunity to support 100% renewable energy.

The proposal, which has been submitted for approval by the California Public Utilities Commission, will provide participating customers with energy from new small- and mid-sized solar projects located in PG&E's service area.

Under the new plan, participants will pay the full cost of the new renewable energy supplies built in direct response to their enrollment. Those additional supplies - provided under long-term contracts by third-party developers - will be incremental to the clean energy that PG&E already purchases for all of its customers. Participating customers will also receive credits for avoided PG&E generation costs, making the program more affordable.
