Peninsula Clean Energy Enrollment Notices and FAQs

Dear Menlo Park Council Members and Staff,

As you know, approximately six months ago, Menlo Park agreed to become part of Peninsula Clean Energy so that its residents could receive cleaner, competitively priced energy.
Peninsula Clean Energy will be sending out enrollment notifications beginning today to 20% of residents and all small and medium businesses across the County. Residents who receive enrollment notices will be automatically enrolled to receive Peninsula Clean Energy's ECOplus product, which is cleaner (50% renewable and 75% greenhouse gas free) and at lower rates than the electricity currently supplied by PG&E. I'm attaching the following other materials for your review:
1. Samples of the enrollment notices in English, Spanish and Chinese. Your residents are receiving the English and Spanish notices.

2. A map of your city's residential customer's distribution for Phase 1 enrollment in October 2016

3. FAQs/ talking points
We anticipate that city staff may begin receiving calls from residents about PCE as soon as the enrollment notices begin to go out today, July 18th. Please forward the sample notices and the FAQs to staff members likely to field such calls so they may can distribute the FAQ's and respond to questions accordingly. We're also requesting that cities include a link to Peninsula Clean Energy on their homepage: www.peninsulacleanenergy.com<http://www.peninsulacleanenergy.com/>. I can provide additional text or graphics as requested.
Please note that if a person does not see his or her street on the map for our Phase 1 enrollment, the person can still choose to enroll in the first phase as an "Early Adopter." Today, July 18th, people are encouraged to enroll on our website (www.peninsulacleanenergy.com<http://www.peninsulacleanenergy.com/>) or call 1-866-966-0110<tel:1-866-966-0110>. Residents can also choose to become an ECO100 customer where 100% of electricity comes from renewable sources and is 100% carbon free. This product has a premium of 1 cent/kWh above the ECOplus rate for each kWh of electricity you use, or for average household in the County, about $5 more each month.
Thank you and please let me know if you have further questions,
