East Bay Community Energy Commercial Programs

East Bay Community Energy, also known as EBCE, is the local electricity supplier in Alameda County. EBCE provides cleaner, greener energy at competitive rates to our customers.

EBCE offers a wide range of programs for commercial customers to help them save energy, money, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Net Energy Metering Incentives

All solar customers will be enrolled in EBCE's Net Energy Metering (NEM) rate, which is substantially similar to PG&E's NEM rate. EBCE provides an additional incentive to low income and municipal customers who have installed a solar system after 6/1/18 (full retail credit plus $0.01/kilowatt-hour (kWh) for every solar kWh exported to the grid.

Battery Energy Storage Demand Response Pilot

To reduce peak energy procurement costs, EBCE is offering customers with existing batter energy storage systems and operators/aggregators of those systems the opportunity to participate in this pilot program. Systems that discharge power during peak energy periods will receive compensation from EBCE. Find out more here.

Energy Efficiency Data

EBCE has invested in a powerful database that enables administrators and implementers of energy efficiency, demand response, and energy management programs to access information that increases building upgrades in Alameda County. This data is also valuable to EBCE's local government partners who are developing greenhouse gas inventories.
