SLO and Morro Bay now receive cleaner energy, and it’s cheaper, officials say

new way of receiving cleaner power, called community choice energy, has arrived in San Luis Obispo and Morro Bay, and it will significantly reduce carbon emissions while saving customers money, officials say.

Monterey Bay Community Power, a nonprofit electricity provider serving Central Coast counties, began providing service to the two SLO County cities on Jan. 1.

Electricity will still be powered through PG&E’s infrastructure, and local customers won’t need to change anything about how they receive energy or pay monthly bills.
